No More Kisses for Bernard!

Publisher: Frances Lincoln Children's Books

Review

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.
