      Well, after reading and loving Love That Dog!, I thought I would definitely Hate That Cat! - considering the story seemed so complete, so satisfying already. But as much as I tried, I couldn't really hate it, just like Jack couldn't go on hating alliterations and onomatopoeia and cats in general or even that black fat mean cat in particular. The story definitely goes a level higher in Hate That Cat! Jack is older, the poems need to be more ENRICHED, as his wonderful teacher puts it. What a great [...]

      There are few things nicer than catching a glimpse of an upcoming children’s book title and bursting into laughter at the cover. A nice laugh, of course. I don’t suppose that many people thought that Sharon Creech’sLove That Dog was in particular need of a sequel. It was a perfectly nice book but a succinct and, in many ways, self-contained verse novel. A slim little book, ideal for those reluctant readers who need to read a book for class but don’t want anything “too long” (oh, insi [...]

      You can't really put a review on poetry books, but it was really good, and funny

    • Mariah says:

      I read this book with one of my students. She and I both preferred this book over the first book, Love That Dog. Jack is at it again with writing poetry to his teacher. He moved up a grade and so did his teacher. However, this book is focused on a cat that he hated, but eventually loved. There are a lot of poems that focus around that cat; just like in the first book with the dog.

    • Jamey says:

      I love this book, and I love how the character is the same. I love that it was about moving on, and that things are not as they appear to be. Jack in the first book was learning how to live with his dog's death, and now it is about bringing a new member to the family. He learns that somethings may look scaring, but in reality looks are not always what appear to be. I love this author and I love this book, and I would highly recommend this book to anyone. It is just a awesome book of growth and l [...]

      I kind of liked this book because it was kind of confusing. This book would be perfect for 4th graders because it's really easy to read. If you liked the book love that dog then you will love this book because the narrator talks about the dog a lot. Here is a short summary of the book. I love dogs but now there is this big, fat, and mean cat that always bits me, hisses at me and so on. But now that i have my own black cat, she is so cute and I don't hate that big, fat, mean cat so much anymore

    • Janna Gifford says:

      Hate that Cat by Sharon Creech is a poetry book that is geared towards the intermediate age group. This book is about Jack who hates poetry and cats but in Miss Stretchberry’s class, he has to express himself through poetry. He starts to write poetry about how he hates cats and then he starts to write about everything he learns and his problems with his Uncle Bill. I rated this book five stars because I love the poems and it is a great educational poetry book to learn all about the ways to wri [...]

      Lovely little book--a story told in blank verse and linked to famous poems. I love the protagonist and his personality and the way the story grows. I read this book aloud (a must with poetry) with my nine year old daughter who had recently completed a poetry unit at school. She loved it, too! Sharon Creech has impressive talents. I love the way she explores words and communication, storytelling and character in this little gem. It will turn kids on to poetry because it's just so fun! Highly reco [...]

    • Travis says:

      I thought this book was fun, interesting, and easy to read. I recommend this book for anyone who doesn't usually like poetry because I'm the same way but I still enjoyed the book. I've heard people say that you should read the book "love that dog" before you read this book but I personally did not find any confusion.

    • Rashika (is tired) says:

      Fun story: I DNFed this book in middle school because I was really mad about all the cat hate but I finally read it many years later and it was totally worth it.

    • ashliyy says:

      This book is written in poem form I really enjoyed this book. It was interesting and funny in a way.I didn't know what the point was but I found out I was reading the second book (Love that dog is the first),I would like to get love that dog, I still enjoyed it.

    • Fruitloopz says:

      It seemed really short and I would really enjoy a longer version and maybe a better ending it just ended with 5 pages of poetry.Other wise this was a great book and I just could not take my eyes off of the pages.

    • Donalyn says:

      I did not find this book as enjoyable as Love That Dog. The story told through the poems was not as emotionally gripping.I did appreciate the inclusion of the original poems at the end, but this book seemed contrived and written for teachers, not young readers.

    • Scott Fillner says:

      Love the way this novel helps to understand what makes poetry great! Also love in Sharon's books how the characters develop before our eyes.

    • Darion Williams says:

      This book was about poems and how he hated cats.I liked this book because it was kind of a plot twist and it was a little funny.I would recommend this book to Cristian Caballero because it's funny.

    • Mara Terrell says:

      Really quick to read and also just a really fun book. My first book I've read written in verse.

    • Josh S. says:

      I think the book over all was ok, it had a lot of Vocabulary words that we have gone over. It was a bunch of poem.

    • Marilyn Belsham says:

      A simple, but heartwarming story of a boy who writes only in poetry and learns to love the things he thinks he hates at the beginning (alliteration, onomatopoeia,d cats!). I quite liked it - especially the end. I also liked the thoughts of his mom, who is deaf, and how she experiences the world as well. A lovely sweet ending.

    • Ben Trevail says:

      A fine follow up to the sublime Love That Dog. It's opened my eyes to the power of poetry to engage reluctant writers and introduced me to some fantastic poetry - thanks Miss Stretchberry / Sharon Creech. Hate That Cat has an added emotional punch by revealing a detail about Mum (I won't spoil here). Planted a seed to develop a unit pairing Varjak Paw with LTD/ HTC.

    • Kate Gooding says:

      Absolutely loved this - a young student writes poems for his English teacher that seem to follow a conversation. An amusing and accurate insight into the child/teen mind regarding language, composition, feeling and messages.

    • Finn Z. says:

      Not the best book for my start of novels in verse, but it was a cute idea and book.

    • Miriam says:

      Nog leuker dan 'Hou van die hond'.

    • Samantha says:

      It wasn’t as good as the first one, but it was still really interesting and fun to read. I did really like the inclusion of Jack’s mom, who is deaf.

    • Rachael Stein says:

      Ella gave this to me for Christmas, along with Love That Dog. She was so excited to share with me some books she had loved.

    • Julian says:

      I loved this book because it tells about the authors life. This book would be perfect for second grade and up if you aren't into cats. This book would be perfect for people who like poetry. When I walked downstairs I saw a little basket. All of a sudden a cat jumped out of the basket

    • Sophia Small says:

      Another wonderful book in verse by Sharon Creech. I am always wowed by the strength of her characters through her stories. It's nice to once again see the strength of Jack in this one, as previously seen in LOVE THAT DOG. I love the ties to popular poems and the depth of her story. The way she tells it carries me towards a joyful mood.

    • Russell says:

      I give Hate That Cat five stars because I Hate ALL Cats.The beginning of the story supported the title when Jack, the kid who had a dog that died like all book dogs do, hated cats. Actually, the beginning supported reality, for who can love ANY cat? But as the reader gets further into the novel, Jack begins to like a gift kitten that his mother got him for Christmas. It was so cute, and Jack could not resist loving it. But he also acknowledged that kittens become evil, like Anakin Skywalker, who [...]

    • Matthew says:

      To check out my reviews: dancinginth3darkI believe Sharon Creech is brilliant in this sequel with Jack and how the title of this book has a double meaning. While I enjoy the company of cats, I will always be a dog lover because I love the thrill of seeing this beautiful animal get excited to kiss me and be loyal and want to play with a ball every morning when I wake up. I have never owned a cat so I cannot tell you whether I would enjoy them as pets but they are funny and cute creatures.This boo [...]

    • Brienna says:

      Personal Response I seriously hated this book, because there wasn’t a main point. I didn’t understand what was going on, because apparently I read the second book not the first one Love That Dog. I didn’t known I read the second book until the very end of the book. Now I should read the first book so it makes more sense. Second book or not, the author should have said more about what was going on and not just random poems that didn’t even make sense. Plot Jack was in fifth grade and his [...]
