Thanks Kate, for your quick wit and quirky sense of humour. I am proud to have played a small part helping your book reach eager fans and new readers. My wife is reading it now on the couch. I havnt had a chance to get my hands on it yet, but from the chuckling beside me, its a success!
Today, I found myself making all the facial expressions that only weird passengers have while reading on a train. Smiling, giggling and even tearing up... a memorable, evocative (and provocative) read that you will want to share.
there is something for everyone in this gem of a book from the very talented kate toon
i have quite a few favourites and i feel that they all come from the heart of the moment...

Loved It. What a funny, relatable and real poetry book. Thanks SO Much! It's not often that you get transported so many places while guided by such an original perspective. Awesome!
