Nobody understands Wallace Wallace. This reluctant school football hero has been suspended from the team for writing an unfavorable book report on Old Shep, My Pal
. But Wallace won't tell a lie-he hated every minute of the book! Why does the dog in every classic novel have to croak at the end?
After Wallace refuses to do a rewrite, his English teacher, who happens to be directing the school play of Old Shep, My Pal
, forces him to go to the rehearsals as punishment. Although Wallace doesn't change his mind, he does end up changing the play . . . into a rock-and-roll rendition, complete with Rollerblades and a moped!
