The Poet Tree(FL: Rose Shell Press '06) 92 p. -- il. by Wayne Hogan A comic book in assorted poetic forms all part and parcel of the story. The theme...concerns personal effort required for the redemption of grief or loss in any individual life. Active art can return joy, delight, love and purpose, sennse of self, nature and even empathy even to people who are depressed or in mourning.
from preface "The Root" by the author
"At times reminiscent of Mother Goose (of course!), Lewis Carroll and even Dr. Seuss, Holt invites her readerís inner child to come out to play in a joyful journey."
