Kiss! Kiss! Yuck! Yuck!: Book Review and Giveaway

KISS! KISS! YUCK! YUCK! by Kyle Mewburn. 
Illustrated by Ali Teo and John O'Reilly

Every time Auntie Elsie visits Andy, he gets ready to run. But Andy is always too slow. When Auntie Elsie finds him, it's Kiss! Kiss! on the left cheek and Kiss! Kiss! on the right cheek. It's enough to make Andy think, Yuck! Yuck!. All of those sloppy kisses keeps him in hiding in the worst places.

One day Andy crawls under the house among the spiderwebs. Andie waits and waits, but this time Auntie Elsie never comes. Could the sloppy kisses be better than not seeing Auntie Elsie at all?

Kiss! Kiss! Yuck! Yuck! is an absolutely adorable picturebook. Any child who has had to endure the kisses of those who love them can relate to Andy.The pencil, photo and fabric collage illustrations are playful and fun. I especially like the colorful collage of Auntie Elsie's clothes and shoes, giving her a touch of eccentricity. This is a perfect read aloud for children ages 4-8. It will elicit both groans and laughter from boys in the room who hate mushy kisses. Adults will enjoy reading aloud this book over and over. Highly Recommended.

It seems like this would be a great, funny book to share with my daughter! It could also open up a discussion about unwanted attention, from anyone.. even if it is family members!

Paul, my 9 year old autistic student would love this book because he is always having to endure things he doesn't want to do and he is often in the escape mode. This book will let him know he is not alone.
