This unique novel is somewhat more of a poem than a novel. In it, a boy named Jack writes about how he doesn't want to write poetry, but he inadvertently ends up writing poems. He writes about well-known poems his class is reading, why he doesn't think he can write poetry, and about his beloved dog named Sky. It's a cute story, and the text is presented in poetry format. The back of the book contains various famous poems that Jack referenced in his own writing. By Sharon Creech, 106 pgs, pb.
