I don’t want it
don’t write poetry
With a fresh and deceptively simple style, acclaimed author Sharon Creech tells a story with enormous heart. Written as a series of free-verse poems from Jack's point of view, Love That Dog shows how one boy finds his own voice with the help of a teacher, a writer, a pencil, some yellow paper, and of course, a dog.
Love That Dog performance is a moving, poetic and inspiring story told through theatre, video and puppetry about a boy who learns that words can be miraculous. Not to be missed!
