E.g.: - NATURE: boys, dog poop, and carbon footprints. - WORDS: the real meaning of -Caucasian.- - BUSINESS: stakeholders, esp. through the heart. - KITCHENS: cooking up tasty Dollar Store kale. - HISTORY: how Hell froze, and how Earth Day got born. - Golden boy gets to be GOLDEN GREMLIN. - Seasonally warm gremlin songs. Sort of. Follow golden gremlin Poppy through this vigorous and funny adventure.

Meet the Author:

Rod Walters lives and writes in upstate New York to prove he can be an all-season writer. Since he wants everybody to be all-season persons no matter her or his circumstance, his writing aims sharply toward the practical—without turning into one of those godawful do it ma’ way authors. Life, after all, is practical hour by hour. Self-described as “old enough to know better, and he probably is,” his former life as Army officer, engineer, and administrative assistant could not have better prepared him to write both light and more serious short pieces pointing to creating a balanced life. Chuckling at yourself usually makes a good takeoff, he says. Giving up having to be certain makes for a good landing, especially for one’s friends! Then again, who the heck wants to live a balanced life? Mostly everybody does. That’s why he now writes. Although many friends nudge and badger him to be a Facebook and Twitter butterfly, he tries not to spend many numbing hours a day with circular keyboard tapping. Writing works better.

Personal Opinion:

I honestly don't think I was the right audience for the book. Some of the stories did have humor and were funny, in particular the mention of how to be smarter than everyone else, but every other story has really gone over my head. Usually when it comes to books I attempt to find something unifying in the stories, but here it seems the author was all over the place and I couldn't understand if he was going for Abe Simpson from The Simpsons or for Peter Griffin's What Really Grinds his gears from Family Guy. Also I believe the jokes are geared towards male audience, not women.
