“What I really liked about the book is that it is seen through the eyes of a dog but there isn’t an attempt to make every poem sentimental about it being man’s best friend.” (5*, Peter, Amazon TOP 1000 Reviewer)
“I thoroughly enjoyed As Good As Gold. The photographs of the dogs that accompany the poems are adorable, and striking. They add another depth to the words, which I thought was beautiful.” (Jessica, 5* Amazon review)
As Good As Gold is also available in e-book, paperback and Large Print, colorful pictures, a dyslexia friendly edition: get it on Amazon UK, Amazon US
“There is something truly magical about this wonderful collection. Having read each poem, I love how every word celebrates our canine companions from the tip of their wet noses to the wag of their tails.” (Susan Day, Editor and Author)

Huberta the Hippo, Amazing Adventures of a Happy River Horse. Read about the adventures and misadventures of a real African hippopotamus that, one day, at noon, decided to migrate south: “The moon sees all from way up high, I wish to also see the world go by.” It took Hubert many years to travel 1 600km south, along the South African coast. Along the way Hubert made many friends and enemies as he was a friendly hippo but with a rather large appetite and he didn’t quite followed the human rules.
