In reality, Brotweiler is more like camp than prison, but still, Ike's not cut out for life without Mrs. LaRue & his creature comforts. Finally, he runs away only to find himself back in Snort City - just in time to save Mrs. LaRue's life.

Marty McGuire's third-grade class has received a special assignment: Save the Earth! Even more exciting, the best project wins a special award. Marty's pretty sure her classmates' ideas won't stand a chance against her plan to turn the garbage from the school cafeteria into fertilizer - with a little help from the earthworms in her Grandma's garden.
But it turns out that worms are awfully SLOW eaters. And when the critters escape, the whole class - including Marty's supposed teammate and best friend, Annie - starts grumbling. In the end, Marty's dirt takes the prize, and she learns no one can save the earth without two very important things: teamwork and patience.
