Today the fat black cat
up in the tree by the bus stop
dropped a nut on my head
thunk
and when I yelled at it
that fat black cat said
Murr-mee-urrr
in a
nasty
spiteful
way.

I hate that cat.

This is the story of
Jack

teacher
and cat.

    I honestly think that it was kind of boring. But it was a fun read and recommend it.

      This book was about a boy named Jack, who hates one black cat. Jack goes to a poetry class every day, and on the top of the book on every page, it tells you the date. On Christmas, Jack finds a surprise under his Christmas tree. What I love about this book is it feels like your in the book. I really recommend this book!

                      I decided to read this book because I read Love That Dog, and it looked very good to me. It was about how the boy didn't like this one fat, black cat. He read a lot of poems about cats and talked to his dad about them. Soon, his dad decided to get him a kitten. He named it SkitterMcKitter. He then finally, learned to love the black cat when she saved Skitter.
