How does kissing feel? Does it taste as sweet as marzipan?

The warthog is very knowledgeable, but sadly it has no idea at all about kissing. This has to change, he decides, and tries his luck with a spider, a bee and a butterfly, but none of them want a kiss from him. And the other animals also prefer to stay unkissed, so the warthog tries kissing a pebble. Will it return his kiss?

A Warthog Wants to Kiss is really special thanks to Erhard Dietl’s rhymes, which guarantee great hilarity, and Christiane Hansen’s beautiful illustrations, which will soon have fans of kissing, large and small alike.

“Cat kisses taste the most purrrrfect,” says Currant, the kitten, as she goes out to play for a while before supper. Hedwig, the goat, hears this – and doesn’t agree, at all. Before Currant knows what’s happening, the goat has planted a rather pongy smacker on her face. And as if that weren’t enough, the other farm animals all think their kisses are best, so that Currant gets to compare the pig’s belly blower, the butterfly’s gentle brush, the duck’s peck, the cow’s smooch, the horse’s pursed lips and the mouse’s snog. But at the end of the day, what she loves the most … is Mummy Cat’s goodnight kiss! | 3 +
