Kisses are Yuk! By Julia Jarman (Hodder Children's Books)

Kisses are Yuk!

Published by Hodder Children's Books

Ugh, is there anything worse than a big sloppy slithery wet kiss from a relative or friend? I mean do these people not know that kisses are where cooties come from?

There's grandma's speciality, the lipstick-poodle-bottom. Auntie's slithery sloppy dribbly one, or Uncle's fuzzy furry scratchy one.

In "Kisses are Yuk!" by Julia Jarman, we sympathise greatly with the young boy who fends off various slippery smooches and smackers, describing each in tummy-churning detail.

There is, of course, one type of kiss that is just right, just perfect but you'll have to track down the book and read it to find out which sort is the best kiss of all!

Charlotte's best bit: Aiiieee! Granny kisses! EEK!

Daddy's Favourite bit: Hey, Auntie looks alright but ugh those slithery smooches, bleee!
