Description

Every time Auntie Elsie comes to visit she gives Andy two big sloppy kisses. Kiss Kiss on the left cheek. Kiss Kiss on the right cheek. Yuck Yuck Andy says to himself.
Andy is a fast runner. But not fast enough to outrun Auntie Elsie. Andy is good at hiding, but Auntie Elsie always finds him. When Auntie Elsie breaks her leg and stops coming to visit, Andy begins to miss Aunt Elsie and her sloppy kisses. Then one day, a taxi pulls by the gate and out come two crutches. Now it's Andy's turn to get Aunt Elsie. Kiss Kiss Hug Hug
Kyle Mewburn's story of an overly affectionate aunt will resonate with readers, who will instantly recognize the bond of love that unites the two characters. Ali Teo and John O'Reilly's colorful and quirky illustrations, which combine freehand drawing and photographic collage, exaggerate the humor of the story.
