Book Review: LaRue for Mayor: Letters from the Campaign by Mark Teague

"LaRue for Mayor: Letters from the Campaign" by Mark Teague is the third book in the best selling, award winning Dear Mrs. LaRue series. In this book, Ike finds his civil liberties at risk when Hugo Bugwort, the hard line mayoral candidate, promises to crack down on free-roaming, fun-loving dogs. As the anti-dog rhetoric escalates, Ike is compelled to join the political fray and run for mayor himself. Bugwort rethinks his pooch-policies when Ike selflessly helps rescue him after he collapses at a campaign rally. Told through letters to Mrs. LaRue and local newspaper accounts.

I really wanted to like this book but really couldn't get into it. I really enjoyed the illustrations and how it shows the election process is. I didn't like how it was written though letters. I thought this story could be written differently. My kids were done with the book after the first page because they thought it was boring.
