Love that book
like a boy loves a cat
I said I love that book
like a boy loves a cat
Love to take a pen in the morning
love to take a pen
Write like that!

Love that book
like a cat loves birds
I said I love that book
like a cat loves birds
Love to feast on its pages
Love to feast on
Perfect words!

Love that Dog has been a favorite of mine ever since its publication, and I hoped that Hate that Cat would live up to its predecessor. What a joy to find it more than lives up to expectations! Creech's latest explains the workings of poetry, poses some profound questions, and explores the nature of love while sharing a heartfelt story. Teachers will find this pair a tour de force for introducing and expanding a poetry unit.
