Love That Dog

Sharon Creech
AUD $14.95

This is an utterly original and completely beguiling prose novel about a boy who has to write a poem, and then another, and then even more. Soon the little boy is writing about all sorts of things he has not really come to terms with, and astounding things start to happen.

I don't want to.
because boys don't write poetry
Girls do.
So writes Jack, in Room 105 - Miss Stetchberry's class. But before he knows it, Jack is creating his own poetry.
