About the Book
These poems were inspired by my young poodle, Tess, and were written for my little grand-daughters who are growing up alongside her. All the poems are about real events in the first year of Tess's life, and are illustrated with photos.
I started writing poems for my two little grand-daughters and for my many great-nieces and nephews, all of whom love Tess, my young poodle. I am now working on a second book of poodle poems, and also "Poems for favourite Children". Other books published through Booksmart, and specifically intended for tiny children, are search-&-find books titled "Where's Tess?" and "Where's Tess now?" When not looking after my grand-children or sitting at my lap-top, I am out in the fresh air, walking or gardening. One day, when I have more time, I intend to start painting again, but I have no idea when that will be!
