    " I really like how the character's voice comes through his poems. The end made me teary because it is so beautiful and sweet. This book is perfect for teachers to use with students because it is an excellent example of poetry writing, and references many poems. You don't have to read Love That Dog first to appreciate Hate That Cat. "

    " This was such a fun book. We listened to it on tape and it popped to life like a cork popping off a champagne bottle. The lyrics danced off the page and leaped around our car. So much fun for people who know a little about poetry or a lot. I can only imagine it would be fun for people who know a lot about poetry because I only know a little. "
