Synopsis

No More Kisses for Bernard! by Niki Daly

Everyone loves Bernard, especially his aunts Lula, Lola, Lilly and Talulah. Whenever they visit, they cover Bernard in kisses from head to toe - squeaky-sweet-hello kisses, sneaky-on-the-nose kisses - and lots of others too. Bernard loves his aunts but he does NOT like the kisses. No more kisses! says Bernard, and he means it. So the aunts come up with a great alternative. They all draw kisses and cut out frilly paper hearts to go with them. Bernard shares his rainbow paper, felt-tip pens and fancy scissors - and everyone is happy. But at the end of the day, tucked up in bed, will Bernard give his Mom and Dad a good-night, sleep-tight kiss? A funny and charming picture book from a master of the genre, with lots of boy - and girl - appeal. Praise for Niki Daly: Wonderfully expressive illustrations! Books for Keeps

'A down-to-earth story that will delight little boys.' 'A down-to-earth story that will delight little boys.'

... This book is great fun, with imaginative language, and illustrations that really capture the quirky characters... A story that many children, especially boys, will identify with and really enjoy.

-kissed four to six year olds. Daly's illustrations hit just the right note. || A welcome addition to those sentimental love-in picture books featuring permanently beaming human or animal children and their parents. Bernard is a determined little boy who declares a unilateral prohibition on over-enthusiastic embraces. Wittily illustrated, this is a story for everyone. || A splendid blend of neat narrative and high quality illustration, this impressive, large picture story book, with its brightly comic account of Bernard's resistance to his various aunts

!), it is a book which richly deeserves success. || A hilarious story with engaging text, the colourful illustrations are filled with detail, a caricature style adding expression to the amusing tale. A story many little boys can relate to!
