This New York Times bestselling sequel to Newbery Medal winner Sharon Creech’s Love That Dog is "an indelible portrait of a boy who discovers the power of self-expression" (ALA Booklist). Hero-poet Jack returns, along with the one-of-a-kind teacher Miss Stretchberry, one fat black cat, plenty of amazing poems, and one beautiful surprise.


Jack’s back, and he’s lucky, because he has his favorite teacher, Miss Stretchberry, in school again this year. A teacher who understands his brain. And he has a new archnemesis—one crazy fat black cat who sure is mean and nothing like his beloved dog, Sky. But maybe, just maybe, this creepy cat will give Jack something to write about. As Jack begins to uncover the writer within him, he starts to see and hear the world in a whole new way and learns how powerful language can be.

With classic poetry from Tennyson, Eliot, and Poe, to name a few, a hilarious hero, and one incredible surprise, Newbery Medal winner Sharon Creech makes magic once again in this narrative poem sequel to the acclaimed Love That Dog.
