“The world is coming to an end.” I pushed the oil rags and cigarette butts off the seat of my friend Arne’s old pickup truck and climbed in. He threw the truck into gear, gunned the engine, and smirked. “What’s the point of being a fairy if you can’t wave a magic wand and get shit done?”

One reader says: “I can’t say enough good things about [the book]. It is based on a true story and the writer has written it first in a rhyming poetic form much like Dr. Seuss. This is followed by the actual story that inspired the poem. It’s heart wrenching at times but if you love dogs you will relate to this story. Even if you aren’t a dog lover, it’s a terrific read, suitable for readers of all ages.”
