Reviewed by Molly Edwards for Readers' Favorite

When I think of poetry, I think of 'roses are red, violets are blue'. That's really the only kind of poetry I've ever read or known. But, when I received the chance to review this book, Pesky Poems by T.L. Needham, I was quite pleased with what I read and how T.L. Needham put the book together.

The result of this authors compilations of poems is a wonderful little book that will sometimes have you smiling, other times have you thinking, and over all, leave you happy that you read this book. It's not a big book, quite small actually. But, the power this book will have over you as your read each poem--from 'Pesky Poem' about having trouble writing the words, to poems about Cupcakes (which makes me hungry just thinking about them all over again!)--will leave you with a wonderful new appreciation for writers and for poetry.

Overall, this is a wonderful book that I highly recommend. Thanks to T.L. Needham, I have a new found love for poetry and wish that other poetry books were compiled like this! Easy to read, wonderful to enjoy, and perfect for everyon looking for a quick read. This is certainly a book that I will be keeping on my book shelf, and when I venture into my writing journey, or even my reviewing, I will be pulling it out and re-reading it and using it for inspiration in finding the words I want to use. I certainly hope that this is not the last poetry book by T.L. Needham!
