A giraffe kiss is very tall; elephant kisses are long; mice and bubbly fish have kisses all their own. Author/illustrator Mary Murphy has created a delightful and most imaginative way to illustrate a whole herd of animal kisses by using an innovative split-page format for her book. Half the pages are split in half vertically and feature an illustration of a baby animal reaching up for a kiss; turn the half-page and it completes a full-page illustration of a mother animal reaching down to her baby for a kiss. Sooooooo cute! Delightful fun for children, especially on Valentine's Day. Delightful illustrations by author/illustrator Mary Murphy Baby animal reaching up for a kiss on split page matches mother animal on full page reaching down. Imaginative split-page format shows many animal kissesFor ages 2 and up.

The theme of the book is such a great idea but the execution of the concept with the illustrations was disappointing.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
