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.
