It is amazing to consider the literary and cultural history of kissing, ranging from lip-touching in "Sleeping Beauty," the vampire's kiss of death that steals the soul in so many movies, the kiss of betrayal by Judas in the Bible, the art of kissing air with business associates, and the smorgasbord of smooching in Hollywood films.

In this spunky and appealing children's picture book for children ages 2 - 4, writer and Illustrator Mary Murphy reveals the diversity of kisses among animals. Included in this volume are gentle and tall kisses by giraffes, quick and small kisses by mice, fizzy and bubbly kisses by fish, fuzzy and buzzy kisses by bees, and more. This enchanting tour of kisses ends with a place for the reader and listener to kiss as well!
