Praise for Happily Never After

“These poems will have you laughing out loud, just before you pause and think, "is Mitchell Symons writing about me?" Ideal for reading aloud at parties and family gatherings when the not-so-young may appreciate the humour even more than the children! Absolutely hilarious!”
