No More Dead Dogs Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Wallace Wallace hates the book Old Shep, My Pal. His reasons? It's boring, and he's tired of dog stories because the dog always dies. In his book report, he writes that his favorite part is on the last page where it says, "The End".
Forced into detention, Wallace has a chance to witness rehearsals for the school play - which happens to be Old Shep, My Pal. Watching the drama take shape, he can't help but make suggestions. All the play needs is a Rollerblading dog catcher, a stuffed animal glued to a remote-controlled car, a moped disguised as a Harley, and some choreographed dance numbers with live rock tunes.
Award-winning author Gordon Korman published his first book at age 12. Since then, he has applied his uproarious sense of humor to more than 30 novels, such as The Chicken Doesn't Skate and The Twinkie Squad. A skilled group of narrators captures every colorful character in this hilarious romp.

It takes town where the most important thing in everyones life appears to be the junior high school football team (like that's believable). Not the high school, but the junior high. Through a fluke play, a bench warmer wins the championship and all of a sudden everyone thinks he's the best player on the team, including most of the team.(In what world does that ever happen?)
Through various circumstances, he ends up involved in the school play (that part is believable). But someone is trying to sabotage the play and he is the prime suspect. As he becomes more and more involved in the play, and more committed to the kids and cast, attempts at sabotage continue. Finally, everyone believes it's him (the part I really found unrealistic).
The story ends happy. I failed to find much humor in it, or things I believe middle school students would find humorous. Therefore my search goes on. The story has potential, would make more sense in a high school rather than a junior high setting where things like football and drama are important to a town, and if some of the "framings" were a little better thought out so that it would be reasonable that kids would turn on poor but innocent Wallace.
I just keep reading the book thinking, "That's not what would happen." The irony is the whole story is based on Wallace hating a story they read in class because that's not what would happen.

This book is very funny. A good entertaining read all the way through. Some people claim it is the funniest thing they ever read. To me, it was not that good. But it was still thoroughly worth the time spent reading it. No more dead dogs is a perfect young adult read. And not just for dog lovers either!
先生が子どもの頃から大好きな名作「Old Shep, My Pal」を、つまらない駄作だと言ってのけているのだ。
そのWallaceが、成り行きから、Fogelman先生が監督する演劇部の作品「Old Shep, My Pal」に口を出し始めたから、大変なことに。
Wallaceと、Wallaceの助言を歓迎する部員達の手で、「Old Shep, My Pal」は、いつの間にかFogelman先生の手を離れて、どんどん変わっていくのだが…
