    A beautifully written, intelligent piece of art. Thank you for this. Suitable for all ages.

    Such a special collection of poetry.
    It really captured Golden Bay’s calm, understated, beauty. It’s also got the gorgeous illustrations adding a touch of quirkiness. Lovely addition to the coffee table collection.
