Author Info
Sharon Creech
Although born in the United States, Sharon Creech has spent many years living in England. In fact, it was while living in England that Creech learned she had won the most prestigious American award for children's literature--the Newbery Medal for her 1995 novel WALK TWO MOONS. Creech's first book, ABSOLUTELY NORMAL CHAOS, was published in 1990. Raised in a suburb of Cleveland, Creech is a Graduate of Ohio's Hiram College and has a master's degree in English and writing from George Mason University. Creech also writes books for adults under the name Sharon Rigg.
Praise
"Teachers will take this story to heart, recognizing Miss Stretchberry's skilled and graceful teaching and Jack's subtle emotional growth both as a person and a writer. This really special triumph is bound to be widely discussed by teachers and writers, and widely esteemed by Creech's devoted readers."
"Creech is a writer of emotionally rich fiction that has often dealt with the inner life of girls, but this time around there's an exquisite new tenderness that gives the story of a boy like Jack learning poetry the quality of a baby deer being coaxed toward a salt lick. Anything could disturb this kid; anything could send him scurrying back into hiding; but with the right handling, nothing does....Sharon Creech has achieved more than one impressive feat here. Not only has she shown young readers what a poem can do, she's also shown them what a novel can do."
From the Publisher
Annotation Forced to keep a journal of original poems as a class assignment, a boy named Jack is initially resistant to the idea of writing poetry. However, inspired by such authors as Robert Frost and Walter Dean Myers, Jack discovers that he enjoys creating poetry and even begins to try out different poetic styles. Many of Jack's poems tell of the wonderful relationship he shared with his pet dog, Sky. Ultimately, Jack's poetry allows him to mourn Sky's death while still celebrating his life and the love they shared. Named a New York Times 2001 Notable Book and one of the Best Children's Books 2001 by Publishers Weekly.
