I could read this book night after night. The text rhymes along cleverly describing how each animal pair would kiss goodnight if they kissed as we do. The illustrations are delightful and the layout of the text on the page, as well as the emphasis of strategic words, complement the animals’ creativity. Really, it is a pleasure to read.
