Bernard loves his aunts, but he hates being kissed by them. It's time to take a stand. "No more kissing!" says Bernard, and he means it. How Bernard's aunts come up with the perfect way to show their affection is comically and warmly told in this brilliant picture book by a master of the genre.
Niki Daly has won many awards for his exuberant work. His groundbreaking Not So fast Songololo (1986), winner of a U.S Parent's Choice Award, paved the way for post-apartheid South African children's books. Since then, he has been published across the globe and has visited and presented talks in several countries. Among his many Frances Lincoln books, Once Upon a Time was an Honor Winner in the US Children's Africana Book Awards of 2004. Jamela's Dress - first in the Jamela series - was another milestone book, chosen by the ALA as a Notable Children's Book and by Booklist as one of the Top 10 African American Picture Books of 2000, and winning both the Children's Literature Choice Award and the Parent's Choice Silver Award. Daly lives with his wife, the illustrator Jude Daly, in Mowbray, a bustling Cape Town suburb.
