When Oliver and Emily Boxwood can't agree on which child their mother, Victoria Rose, loves the most, they decide to hold a contest: Whoever receives the most hugs and kisses before the sun goes down is their mother's favorite child. While Emily's kind deeds are rewarded with many hugs and kisses, Oliver's attempts to win his mother's affections keep ending in disaster. In the end, however, Oliver and Emily learn that when it comes to their mother's love, there's no contest.

Susan Wheeler and Paul Kortepeter introduce readers to the Boxwood family of Holly Pond Hill in this charmingly illustrated and lavishly embossed storybook that's sure to be a family favorite.
