Product description

The heartwarming story of a boy and the gradual revelation of his feelings for his dog, described through the poetry that he writes in class. When Miss Stretchberry encourages Jack to tell his own story through verse, he slowly learns the pleasures of writing poetry. What emerges is a moving and memorable story about a very special dog, and a boy’s growing passion for verse. From Carnegie Medal winner Sharon Creech, this moving and resonant story is written in simple, lyrical language and accessible short chapters.

“Sharon Creech has written a book that is delightful, funny and poetic… a book that reminds us all that poetry is about exploring every corner of our language, and that storytelling is the first art. When they come together it is magical. Love That Dog is a book of magic.” Benjamin Zephaniah

“A beautiful wonderful lovely little book.” Geraldine McCaughrean

“I really loved this one – so original and funny and touching.” Amanda Craig, The Independent
