First someone eats a steak right off the barbecue. Then someone digs up Mom's flower bed. Spike knows it's not his fault, but Shannon still has to take him to obedience school. While nervous at first, Spike discovers he loves school. He's good at all the lessons, he makes a new friend, and he even gets a blue ribbon. But as soon as he gets home, the trouble starts again. Will Spike be able to find the real culprit-before he gets blamed for more trouble?
Family Life called Spike "a goofy-looking dog you've just got to love," and in Spike in Trouble, Spike's misadventures are as funny and endearing as ever.

PreSchool-Grade 2-Another enjoyable installment in a series of books about a lovable pet. When Spike's family discovers a steak missing from the barbecue, Dad's favorite boots chewed up, overturned trash cans, and a dug-up flowerbed, the dog is blamed and sent off to obedience school in disgrace. However, after he graduates with honors, the annoyances begin again, and Spike comes up with a plan to uncover the truth. Patiently, he hides and watches, and eventually finds out the identity of the troublemaker. Playful cartoon illustrations in bold colors capture the personality of the maligned but spunky canine. Children who search the pictures carefully will find clues to the culprit's identity.
