Description

Jack is back at school and still enjoying lessons with Miss Stretchberry. But he doesn't agree with everything about her, for example Miss Stretchberry likes cats, and Jack hates them. Or does he? A delicious book perfect for reading alone, or aloud, that displays once again Sharon Creech's incredible skill as a writer of fiction for young readers.show more

Review quote

'Sharon Creech is a skilful storyteller, whose books I always read with pleasure' Philip Pullman, Guardian 'The two books [Hate That Cat and Love That Dog] together offer a sympathetic and humorous view of a child coming to terms with the loss and fear in his life through his own efforts and his own words. They are also an enthralling introduction to poetry's unique appeal' Books for Keeps 'The secret is loud and clear. Poetry is for tossing about, the way a kitten tosses a ball, for the sheer fun of it. Take the ball, run with it. Don't leave it to the poets' Inis 'Creech manages to turn the humdrum world into one of mysteries and miracles' Mail on Sundayshow more
