The book I read was Love That Dog. It was a novel and had poems in it too. The setting was at a school with a teacher names Miss Stretchbery. The main character was a student of Miss Stretchbery although his name was not mentioned. A quote that was in the book that I likes was,
I dont want to
Because boys
Dont write poetry,
Girls do.
The genre of the book was poetry. Although it was not all poetry, they were talking about poetry; they were writing poems and talking about poets. The point of view was being told from a student of Miss Stretchbery. He was talking all about his own opinions about poetry.
Love That Dog was all about a boy whose class is writing poetry. At first he doesnt want to try t and says its for girls not boy, but finally his teacher persuaded him to try and he found out he is a wonderful poet. He gets more and more interested in poetry and starts to write poems. The best one he wrote was about his dog that died.
Love that dog
Like a bird loves to fly
I said I love that dog
Like a bird loves to fly
Love to call him in the morning
Love to call him and say
Hey there, Sky!
That poem was inspired from his favorite poet Mr. Walter Deen Meyers. So, he wrote a letter to Mr. Walter Deen Meyers asking him to visit school but was understanding if he didnt have time. His teacher told him that he probably wasnt going to write back and that he shouldnt get his hopes up. But after about a week he wrote back saying he would love to come to his school.
I would recommend this book to other kids of all ages, although not for a book report because it is to short and theres not enough information or detail to write a book report. It was defiantly a page turner because I was so excited I could actually finish a whole book in one day! It was easy to focus on the book because it was so simple and there were no confusing events. I connected with the character because recently my dog died and I know how it feels, I also like poetry even though Im not very talented at it. The plot was believable because classes do learn about poetry and peoples dogs do die. I enjoyed this style of writing because it was simple and easy to read.
Overall I thought this book was pretty good and I think other readers should read it too.
