In The News

“Children love kisses: the way they sound, how they feel, and the emotion they evoke. They are particularly fascinated by the imagined trajectory and landing of a blown kiss. Gibson captures all that and more in rhythmic, evocative phrases that describe kisses sailing, smelling of ginger and cinnamon, feeling as velvet as peach fuzz, and smacking like bubble gum. Van Lieshout's digital art replicates woodblock prints and takes readers from urban, suburban, forest, and waterfront settings across the land of opportunity, striking a patriotic note…adults will still appreciate the sentiment, while youngsters will eagerly await the kisses the book is sure to engender.” —Booklist

“What starts out as a celebration of affection turns out to be a paean to life in the United States, and the message is clear: in almost every kind of place you can think of, people are expressing love for each other.” —Publishers Weekly

“Elegant, ambitious.” —Kirkus Reviews
