Here’s a lovely review posted at Amazon.com:
What a pick me up book…A great gift giving book that delights and gives u a warm and fuzzy feeling.. Perfect to give to a friend for a birthday or just a general Brighten up your day read. I am planning on ordering some to keep on hand for such a occasion. I did order my Mother a copy and her comment was “Its just adorable ” Its a quick read so the person you give it to doesn’t have to be a avid reader or have the time to read a book that takes them weeks to finish. The illustrations are very charming and makes you understand the sweetness of this book. Everyone will smile after reading this like I did.
We hope you will enjoy the book as much as this reader did.

This past year has been the year of the book
Considering all the hours it took.
Now I need to commence
recouping the expense.
Marketing is not really my cup of tea
But it’s an absolute necessity! –
And while I am working on this writ
I’m wondering “how does one do it?”

It pleases me greatly that you found it worthwhile
to spend time with it and smile.

The writing was fun.
Re-writing was challenging, but it got done.
The illustrations are in their proper place
and we can say with (almost) a straight face:
We kept our composure… and now… with aplomb…
