Everyone loves Bernard, especially his aunts Lula, Lola, Lilly and Talulah. Whenever they visit, they cover Bernard in kisses from head to toe - squeaky-sweet-hello kisses, sneaky-on-the-nose kisses - and lots of others too. Bernard loves his aunts but he does NOT like the kisses. "No more kisses!" says Bernard, and he means it. So the aunts come up with a great alternative. They all draw kisses and cut out frilly paper hearts to go with them. Bernard shares his rainbow paper, felt-tip pens and fancy scissors - and everyone is happy. But at the end of the day, tucked up in bed, will Bernard give his Mom and Dad a good-night, sleep-tight kiss? A funny and charming picture book from a master of the genre, with lots of boy - and girl - appeal. Praise for Niki Daly: "Wonderfully expressive illustrations!" Books for Keeps

Aunt Tallulah flips the visor and plants a “fat, smudgy one right on his nose!” Chastised by the other aunts, she apologizes, sort of, by asking for “a little huggles.” The saddened aunts do come up with a solution when the aforementioned Tallulah offers a paper kiss, leading to an afternoon of c...

Bernard agrees, but his Aunt Tallulah can’t resist and sneaks in a kiss on the nose.
