My grandmother wants a book likely published in the early 80s about a dog that goes to school, the dog thinks school will be wonderful, but once he gets there he doesn't like it as much as he thought he would.  Any ideas about what this book could be? 

Thanks! Paige

Good luck!

It doesn't sound familiar, but you can try www.abebooks.com   They have a forum called Booksleuth, and they are great at helping to find those books we just can't forget, but also can't remember!

Are you sure it was a dog and not a Moose.  There is a series of books Moris the Moose and one of them he goes to school. JEan

Are you sure it's not Sammy the Seal by Syd Hoff?
