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.

Splicing together the colours to life in words, the poems of 'Gone Dotty might' find you giggling a little too loud in a public space or brought to tears in the space of a poem or two. A little something for everyone, the author, Kate Toon, introduces us to a wide range of characters, locations, situations, and emotions, in each a woven yarn. Just add caffeine, chocolate, and imagination.

From beginning to end, 'Gone Dotty' will leave you hungry for more dumplings like these, by Kate. Read and as
