“A delightful book of beautifully written pet themed poetry. I purchased this as a gift for some dog owning friends and they LOVED it. At 91 pages there are a lot of poems; you get your money’s worth!”

“The poems and artwork in this book are so inspiring to the reader. It’s like the author looked into the eyes of each of the animals portrayed and gave them a voice. The artistry is beautiful. You can see the relationship the artist has with each ‘pet’ as she shows their personality in portrait. Definitely a must buy for every pet owner!”
