Shel Silverstein, A.A. Milne, and Ogden Nash have a sister-in-rhymes named Martha Sears West ... She focuses on the joy and magic of childhood and how adults can retain a childlike sense of wonder. All [West's poems] are composed with flawless rhythms and inspired rhymes ... an absolute delight!--Karen McCarthy, ForeWord Clarion Reviews
Meet Martha: Young Martha Sears would lie in a pile of leaves with pencil and paper, composing poems of profound incomprehensibleness. She couldn't even understand them herself. Today she crafts memorable lines, noting that old people can remember being young but children can't remember being old. She feels that every generation needs to be reminded of this.
