Publishers Weekly

Chirpy adjectives and large flaps describe and reveal the ways that different animals kiss. In one scene, a large fish greets a little one: “A fish kiss is fizzy and bubbly... like this!” A flip of the flap unites the two fish in an aquatic kiss. Elsewhere, two smiling bees meet for a midair smooch (“A bee kiss is fuzzy and buzzy... like this!”), and when owls kiss, it’s “tu-wit, tu-wooty.” The chunky, childlike animals stand out against the predominantly white pages, while the flaps and sound effects contribute to a lively interactive experience. Ages 2–4. (Dec.) 2012 Reed Business Information
