This book, Moo, is compared to Love That Dog in that Moo is written in verse. It is, in fact, a combination of poetry and prose. I'm afraid, however, that's where the similarities end. With Moo, Creech has offered a storyline for a side of life not often written or read about. It is a story of rural America, the raising of cattle, and county fairs. It is a story that includes what few children know about any more - the showing of lifestock.
The description of this book on the author's website is as follows:
Following one family’s momentous move from the city to rural Maine, an unexpected bond develops between twelve-year-old Reena and one very ornery cow.
Overall, this is an easy read (I read it in virtually a single sitting.), and the poetry runs keep the reader moving for page after page, so you might consider checking it out. See if your evaluation agrees or disagrees with mine.
