" I think the book has resonance for young and old readers. Older readers will appreciate and remember some of the trials and tribulations of youth and younger readers will identify with the poems. I particularly liked The Companion having cats myself. there are also stories that intersperse which I really like a meritorious effort and a pleasant gentle read. To be recommended."
