    I just bought and read all three. Delightful verse! Darling stories! The drawings are perfect! I ‘liked’ all three and ‘liked’ your author page, which is quite witty! Your stories in verse remind me of the classical nursery rhymes. I think kids and adults are going to fall in love with this series! Bravo, Alarna!
