Staff Pick

Jack is back! For those of you who, like me, love Sharon Creech's Love That Dog, there couldn't be better news. Funny, touching, and perfect for reading aloud to a class that is learning about poetry, Hate That Cat is a perfect sequel to a middle-grade classic.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sara has always loved cats. She surrounds herself with pictures of cats, stuffed cats, even cat-headed slippers. But she’s never been allowed to have a real cat of her own. Her father has always told her no, for reasons he won’t explain.

So when a fluffy snowball of a kitten darts through their front door and into her life, Sara believes her dream might finally come true. But convincing her father to break his strict No Cats policy seems impossible. She has less than a week to persuade him that this kitten is exactly what their lonely, broken family of two needs to heal.

Told in lyrical, spare verse, Serendipity & Me is a sparkling novel that elegantly handles the topic of loss for a middle grade audience.

Synopsis:

Jack

Room 204—Miss Stretchberry

February 25

Today the fat black cat
up in the tree by the bus stop
dropped a nut on my head
thunk
and when I yelled at it
that fat black cat said
Murr-mee-urrr
in a
nasty
spiteful
way.

I hate that cat.

This is the story of
Jack
words
sounds
silence
teacher
and cat.

I love that book
like my grandpa loves pie
I said I love that book
like my grandpa loves pie

Love to eat it in one sitting
Love to eat it
lean back, sigh.

(With thanks to Mr Walter Dean Myers, and Jack.)
