Love That Dog is the story of Jack. The story is a one sided conversation of Jack's dog and how he feels about poetry. Jack gains an understanding of poetry and learns to really enjoy writing it. He is also able to come to terms with his beloved dog's death. Jack also discovers Walter Dean Myer's and invites him to come to the school, and to Jack's surprise, he actually comes. Love That Dog is a very fun and cute book. I found this story to be very funny and I really loved Jack. It also made me appreciate poetry a lot more. I have never liked reading poetry but I really loved reading this one. I realized that there is a lot more to poetry books than I knew and I think I will give more poetry books a chance. I think everyone should read this book.
Received this in a drawing organized by Nicole. Read it on the plane to Mallorca, fun read about mistaken identity.
Recommended to me by a friend who thought this a wonderful example of the genre. I didn't particularly care for it- or perhaps I should say, didn't particularly care for what I read of it, because I stopped reading. Life is too short to trudge through books that don't grab you. But...there will be someone out there who will love this. I'm just not the one! It was passed along through BookCrossing.
