Description of this Book

No More Kisses is a humorous short story for children between the ages of 3 to 8 years. This story depicts that time in a young child's life when they feel that kisses are overrated, particularly the ones that they receive from their nearest and dearest. Sam wakes up on his fifth birthday and decides that he no longer needs or wants kisses. Knowing too well of the copious amounts of unwanted kisses that await him on his special day, what better day to start his 'no kisses' rule? Sam is determined to escape his family's sticky, prickly, smelly and hairy kisses. Sam dodges, ducks, weaves and flees his relentless family but comes unstuck by a flight of stairs and big shoes. Trapped in a hospital bed feeling very sorry for himself and with no way of escaping, Sam's diligent family members visit him and are able to plant their snotty, wet, tickly smooches on him. One by one, these kisses, pecks and snogs all help to lift his spirit and warm his heart.

Author's Bio

Rebecca McGregor was born in the western suburbs of Melbourne and moved to a small town in regional Victoria with her mum and three sisters at five years old, where the girls spent their childhood playing sports, riding horses and train-tripping down to Melbourne to visit their father. After high school, Rebecca moved back to Melbourne to complete a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Teaching at the Australian Catholic University. She began teaching in 2002 and taught throughout Melbourne's western suburbs before moving to Gippsland in 2010. Rebecca lives in The Heart with her husband and their boys, Clay and Beau, and is enjoying being a mum, a teacher and now an author. Tummy Holes (2016) is her first book, followed by No More Kisses (2019). The Heart, VIC Olivia completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the National Art School. Her style is influenced by the impressionist art movement as well as illustrators Beatrix Potter, A.A. Milne and Ludwig Bemelmans. She is a perpetual daydreamer with a nostalgic love for the past. Growing up, she had a wonderful Cabbage Patch doll, Henrietta, that became more friend than toy, and she believes in the magic of bringing all story tale characters to life in the same way, for all the children who read them.
