Hate That Cat
Written by Sharon Creech
Hate That Cat provided a great balance of new and old. There were many great call-backs to Love That Dog, but at the same time, it establishes its identity as a new book. I was glad to see that Creech (and Jack) decided to let the Sky stuff go, and was also glad to see a book with a main focus on cats (although the 'hate' part? Not so awesome.) After Love That Dog's crashing climactic ending, Hate that Cat's ending was a bit of a letdown, but it was still a fantastic sequel.
