The Lovereading4Kids comment

This charming, sweet and affectionate story is perfect for bedtime reading. It contains very simple text ideally suited for a young child, which is complemented by some vibrant and reassuring illustrations portraying savannah animals.

If you enjoyed this then try some other titles by the author including Stone Girl Bone Girl and Happy Birthday Chimp and Zee.

Synopsis

A Kiss Like This by Laurence Anholt

Everyone needs kisses. Tickly monkey kisses, slurpy sloppy elephant kisses, even snippy snappy crocodile kisses. But when you are a sleepy little Lion Cub, the only kiss that’s just right is a huge great Big Golden Lion kiss – just like this!

Reviews

This sweet book is so much fun to read with/to your baby or child! You kiss and cuddle your child while reading the book, just as the big mama lion kisses and cuddles her cub. This book will have parent(s) and child interacting and enjoying, and sharing some of the best quality time they can muster while creating memories to carry with them always. You may want to have a spare copy set aside for your child because she will want to carry on the tradition with her own kids one day! www.writeaway.org.uk This is the perfect curl-up-and-get-cosy read.

About the Author

Laurence Anholt

Laurence Anholt has written over seventy books, many in collaboration with his wife Catherine. They are both highly regarded in the UK and abroad as a successful author/illustrator team, and have had their books translated into many different languages. They met as undergraduates at Falmouth School of Art, and went on to achieve Master’s Degrees from the Royal Academy of Art and the Royal College respectively. The books which they have collaborated on are based firmly within their own family’s experiences, and many of Catherine’s illustrations depict scenes which families will recognise. It is this element which has helped to make their books so successful. Laurence also writes and illustrates his own books, and has written books with other illustrators, notably the Seriously Silly Stories, a topsy turvy series based on traditional tales but with a wonderful new twist. These were hilariously illustrated by Arthur Robins. In this series, Snow White and the Seven Aliens was awarded The Smarties Book Prize, and was shortlisted for the Federation of Children’s Book Groups Children’s Book Award and the Experian Big Three Book Prize. Daft Jack and the Beanstack was on the Sheffield Book Award shortlist and Ghostyshocks and the Three Scares was Pick of the Year for the Children’s Book Award. Laurence writes for a wide range of ages and is one of the most popular authors of today. Catherine and Laurence Anholt live in Lyme Regis with their three children.
