No More Kisses for Bernard!

Publisher: Frances Lincoln Children's Books


Bernard’s aunts love him to pieces but their way of showing it, with sloppy, squeaky, smoochy, lipsticky kisses, drives him bonkers. Despite his best efforts (wearing a helmet with the visor down!), the kissing continues until one day he gets so upset the aunts simply have to stop and listen to what he wants. After a bit of ingenious negotiation, Bernard and his loving aunts find a way to express their affection that keeps everyone happy.

Lively and evocative illustrations reinforce the humour in this witty portrayal of a dilemma faced by many youngsters when relatives come to visit.
