A lively celebration of the magic of a kiss. Gorgeous illustrations show the wonderful impact of every kind of kiss. There are frogs kissing, dogs kissing, rain kisses and snow kisses, near miss kisses and lipstick kisses! Enjoy them all. Everyone is special! ~ Julia Eccleshare


The Biggest Kiss by Joanna Walsh

Kisses on noses, kisses on toes-es, sudden kisses when you least supposes. Who likes to kiss? I do, I do! Even the shy do. Why not try, too?

Everyone needs kisses - so what could be better than a book that is full of them? From kisses with lipstick to sleepy goodnight kisses, there's a kiss here for everyone. Find out whether worms kiss underground, with the soil all around, or whether fish kiss like this - splosh, splash, splish. And find out which kiss is the best kiss of all in this fabulous feel-good book that is full of wamth and humour.
