27. Hate That Cat

By: Sharon Creech

Level: J

Sequel to Love That Dog

 

Jack is back in sixth grade with Miss Stretchberry and is learning more about poetry.  He is in disagreement with his uncle about what a poem can look and sound like.  He is feuding with a cat that he tried to rescue and that turned on him instead.  Jack is also looking for a way to make the poems come alive for his mother.  Overall, Jack is growing up as he learns to accept things around him.  This novel is written in poetry, but most kids will not notice that, kids will love that each page only has a few words on it and short sentences.
