Children Ages 8+ • 1 hr. • Unabridged • © 2008

In a companion book to LOVE THAT CAT, student Jack begins the school year with the very same Miss Stretchberry who introduced him to poetry the previous year. Initially, Jack is both poem-less and pet-less, but Miss Stretchberry works her magic as the year unfolds. Narrator Scott Wolf jumps right into Jack's shoes. Wolf’s youthful voice speeds and slows, adding poignancy to the free-verse monologue. He gives voice to Jack's many moods—elation over discovering onomatopoeia and tenderness as his compassion for his deaf mother deepens, for example. Recitations of the poems included in the story complete the recording. A.R. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2008]
