“As usual, Lowry delivers tight, page-turning prose, plenty of humor, and characters right out of readers' neighborhoods.”—Kirkus Reviews
What could possibly go wrong when Anastasia Krupnik walks to a mailbox early one morning with two packages and a dog? A mail mix-up of a most embarrassing kind. Instead of mailing the letter, she deposits her dog’s morning business! As her school “Values” class debates moral issues and the local police confiscate the corner mailbox, Anastasia faces a dilemma of her own. Should she confess? What is the right thing to do? With her characteristic integrity and humor, Anastasia weighs her options.

The trouble begins when Anastasia goes to the mailbox with two packages and her new dog, Sleuth. It's there that she accidentally puts the bag of dog droppings into the mailbox instead of her mother's package. When she realizes her mistake, Anastasia uses her school Values Class experience to help her decide what to do. But when the police take the corner mailbox, Anastasia's sure she's committed a crime that will land her in jail.About the Author:
