Stuey has a secret that makes him not want to start second grade. His secret is that he can't read very well. His best friend, Will, loves to read. He has been reading since he was four years old. Stuey is sure he is the only one in second grade who can't read, then he meets his second grade teacher, Ms. Curtis. Ms. Curtis is a new teacher who tells the class that she wants to be their friend. Maybe second grade won't be so bad, after all. Other chapters are about Stuey's favorite holiday, Halloween, when Stuey has a plan to top all his previous Halloween capers, Stuey's soccer woes, and an end-of-the-school-year surprise.

Hal believes his wish has finally come true when his father lets him pick out a pup for his 10th birthday.

Hal decides to steal Fleck back from the pet store and run away with him to his grandparents' house in Northumberland. As Hal and Fleck set out on their long journey from London, they are joined by dog lover, Pippa and four more dogs. Hal's parents offer a huge reward for Hal's safe return and so the group ends up traveling on foot as they try to avoid capture by a bumbling private detective and various other money hungry characters. The group also encounter great kindness and help on their long journey which involves side excursions to a circus, an orphanage, a monastery and a sheep farm. This is an exciting adventure told with great humor that has a delightfully satisfying outcome that will especially appeal to all dog lovers.
