Sharks & Butterflies – Is now available the new collection of poems by John D Robinson


“Sharks & Butterflies” is the new collection of poems written by John D. Robinson and published by Cajun Mutt Press, now available on e-stores.

On the cover you can find the artwork made by Janne Karlsson that perfectly captures the essence of John D Robinson’s ‘Sharks & Butterflies,’ the big and powerful against the small and seemingly fragile.

“So, in this case, you CAN judge a book by its cover” says the editor of the book.

The poems in this collection are about all things against the odds. Full of tales about struggles and triumphs.
