Nicola Streeten (see 'artictic collaborations' above) designed the covers!

HE'S A POET; AND DOESN'T KNOW IT!
Daniel has already published several English language poems for children (and adults) on his
English language Youtube channel - Inglés Interactivo con Daniel Smith and is writing more
in 2020. He uses his own music compositions as background and his wife, Isabel Perez Puig, designs
the graphics. And every poem is 12 lines long! Influences by 12-bar blues per chance?
Must be his natural rhythm/meter...
