The Charming Gift of Rhyme

Here is a lovely review that put a big smile on my lips, for my children's book Jess and Wiggle:

5.0 out of 5 starsThe Charming Gift of Rhyme, April 4, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Jess and Wiggle (Kindle Edition)
With the lightest of touches, talented artist/author Uvi Poznansky inks and pens her way through this delightful book, reminiscent of old school illustrators and writers from the past. Using an antique curly-Q looking font, we are introduced to Jess, “a little girl with the cutest red curl,” who doesn’t like to smile. Inspired by the book’s absolute charm, I can’t help but finish my review like this (not nearly as good as the author’s, btw!)

No matter how many games one plays,
Jess meets each person with a solemn gaze.
Until up crops Wiggle in her sock,
Now HE has the amazing gift of shock.
And shock he does with huge savoir faire,
Making this charming children’s book
Something we all should share!
