Pete Goes to School
Diana Duncan, author
Pete Goes to School is a rhyming tale about a young boy, Tom and his Labrador dog Pete. When Tom goes off to boarding school Pete runs away from home and arrives at Tom?s school late at night. The next day the headmaster says that Pete ?must go? but Tom?s formidable Mum turns up and persuades him, through a mixture of hard talk and flattery, that if Pete were allowed to stay at the school, not only would he make an excellent ?In House? dog but his appointment would also enhance the school?s (and more importantly) the headmaster?s reputation. Of course Mum gets her way and Tom, his school mates and Pete in particular, are very happy. School life is much easier to bear with a school dog to pat and cuddle!
