Hate That Cat by Sharon Creech

Another year. Jack is back and so is his poetry loving teacher. This year, Jack is still grieving for his dog and hates the stray cat in his neighborhood.

What I thought: A very quick read! I love Jack. His voice is so fresh and boyish. I can't believe I waited so long to read this sequel to Love That Dog. I wish I'd had a teacher like Jack has. I applaud her for introducing her students to such classic poems. I didn't study William Carlos Williams until college. My favorite part is the poets' day. It gives me an idea for a bulletin board to use for National Poetry Month.
