Book Review: My Kind of Poetry by Janice Carter

My Kind of PoetryMy Kind of Poetry by Janice Carter
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This delightful collection of poems, which are written straight from the poet’s heart and mind, are beautifully illustrated by sketches drawn by herself. All of the poems are so enchanting and personal. There is a good mix of places that Janice has visited, famous people she’s met and admired, less famous friends, family and acquaintances and milkmen and snooker players. You’ll discover what a Scotsman wears under his kilt; perhaps. You’ll even gain an insight into Janice’s attachment to pop socks. Many were written for people on their birthdays or on the occasion of their retirement, or to celebrate the birth of their first child.

Most of the poems are amusing, but some are tinged with sadness. The finale is a poem to the memory of the poet’s dear parents, whom she misses greatly.

All in all, a charming little book of very personal rhymes which will appeal to many. I thoroughly recommend it.
