"I guess it does
look like a poem
when you see it
Jack hates poetry. Only girls write it and every time he tries to, his brain feels empty. But his teacher, Ms. Stretchberry, won't stop giving her class poetry assignments -- and Jack can't avoid them. But then something amazing happens. The more he writes, the more he learns he does have something to say.
With a fresh and deceptively simple style, acclaimed author Sharon Creech tells a story with enormous heart. Written as a series of free-verse poems from Jack's point of view, Love That Dog shows how one boy finds his own voice with the help of a teacher, a writer, a pencil, some yellow paper, and of course, a dog.
“A really special triumph.”
-Kirkus (*Starred Review*)
“Readers will love that dog, and this book.”
-Publishers Weekly (*Starred Review*)
“A poignant, funny picture of a child’s encounter with the power of poetry. This book is a tiny treasure.”
-School Library Journal (*Starred Review*)
