The heroine of The Charlotte Stories returns, easing her pain over the loss of her favorite teachers by finding a strange dog in a rainstorm that only responds to backwards commands. description: Product Description: Charlotte has had very bad news: her favorite teacher is leaving the school. She almost cries in class and determines to hate the replacement forever. But when a strange dog - whom she meets in a rainstorm after a baseball game in which she hits the ball so hard it explodes - insists on coming home with her, she feels comforted. The dog will only respond to backward commands - emoC ereh! - so she names her "ttuM.

ttuM becomes Charlotte's constant companion. When Charlotte goes with her parents to a summer cottage, ttuM goes, too. Everything seems perfectly normal until Charlotte discovers what seems to be a witch living down the road. And the witch's house smells enticingly of gingerbread cookies. When ttuM doesn't come home one night, Charlotte is grief-stricken. She musters all her courage to go find the dog, even if it means breaking into the witch's house.

Charlotte finally finds ttuM, and in doing so solves her problem about the new teacher as well.
