“Jack is back in this long-awaited follow-up to Love That Dog, and he doesn't disappoint. This time, Jack's poetry to his teacher, Miss Stretchberry, compares creepy cats to delightful dogs. The perfect book to get kids (and adults) excited about poetry.”

Before beginning her writing career, Sharon Creech taught English for fifteen years in England and Switzerland. She and her husband now live in Maine, lured there by our grandchildren, Creech says. Moo was inspired by our mutual love of Maine and by our granddaughter s involvement in a local 4-H program. We have all been enchanted with the charms of cows.
