If there’s one thing Piper Paw hates, it’s being kissed by his doting mother, Mrs. Velvet Paw. And one day she does the unforgivable: she kisses Piper in front of his friends! "Kisses, kisses all the time," howls Piper. "I don’t like it. I don’t want it. Good‐morning kisses, licky kisses, soggy kisses!" What can Mrs Paw do? She answers her son with a surprise of her own – and it’s not a kiss.

Editorial Reviews

"Finished off with a wonderful matte cover and flawless reproductions. . .ten thumbs up and a couple of big toes, too!" – Vintage Children’s Books My Kids Love

"Back in print after 40 years, Tomi Ungerer’s wickedly funny pencil drawings were inspired by his own naughty childhood memories – and we think they’ve stood the test of time. In short, this book is the cat’s pajamas. Meow." – Daily Candy
