Hardcover

A grasshopper mouth opens east-west but not south. They're like scissors for chopping up leaves.
"Don't try to hide from a kiss on its side," says grandpa grasshopper to nymphs.
How would a grasshopper kiss?

Whichever it is, this much is true. When we say goodnight, I love all kinds of kisses from you!

We humans smooch with our lips. But how do giraffes, whales, hummingbirds, tree frogs, and other creatures kiss? It's fun to wonder about and to see in the pages of this charming book, which includes facts about each animal at the end. Perfect for Valentine's Day and all year round.

Praise for All Kinds of Kisses

"Swain invites readers to contemplate the types of kisses 11 animals might bestow on each other, based on their distinctive mouths, beaks, tongues, and jaws. A grasshopper's mouth, for instance, is "like scissors for chopping up leaves.... How would a grasshopper kiss?" ... What is consistent is the tenderness between the adult animals and their offspring, as captured in Henry's (It's Raining Bats and Cats) rough-edged, mid-20th-century-retro portraits. A closing spread offers additional details about the sun bears, porpoises, chubsuckers, and other features creatures."--Publishers Weekly
