Introduction Mom in the Kitchen By: Jack “Crunching on a pickle in the middle of the room juice running down her arm It tastes good to her It tastes good to her It tastes good to her” As you have seen and heard Jack’s poetry is dreadful. I tried. Can’t do it. Brains empty. This is a story about jack,words, sounds, silence, a teacher and a cat
Plot Jack is growing up and is struggling with poetry. Jack’s self-esteem is lowered when he reads the writings of professional poets. Luckily his teacher Mrs. Stretchberry, helps him throughout the school year.
What Did I Like? I enjoyed the part when Jack gets a cat for Christmas. He finds joy in the cat and starts to like cats. Now, I’m going to read you that part as my favorite part of the book.
What Did I like? My favorite part was when a cat was right by the door and the fat black cat was also right by the door and Jack let the cats in. Now I am going to read you that part as my favorite part of the book.
