George Turrell launches new book campaign for ‘Moons, Balloons and Tunes’

Moons, Balloons and Tunes” (published by Trafford Publishing) is a collection of poems written by Frances Berry Turrell, the mother of author George Turrell. This poetry book brings readers a good laugh – and just one tear.

The poems express the thoughts of a baby and the world around him as he sees it. The sketches in this book were made by the author’s friend in Paris. “It should be appreciated by couples who have a baby, or wished they did,” Turrell says.

The author’s mother had always hoped to publish her works, but never saw the day. This book serves as her memoir after her 100th birthday.

An excerpt from the book:
I’ve made this book for babies,
And for other people, too, —
About the world, and how it looks from a baby’s point of view
