Zippy was a dog with a little too much . . . zip. But that’s the way Harris, his owner, liked him. Zippy made everything more fun, from digging for treasure in the garden to making tidal waves in the tub. The rest of Harris’s family thought Zippy needed obedience school. But obedience school made Zippy so well-behaved that he was no fun at all. Luckily, Harris knew just what to do: send Zippy to Bad Dog School! Barbara M. Joosse’s uncanny understanding of the relationship between children and animals is showcased in this sweet, funny story about compromise.
