From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 1—Poor Andy. When Auntie Elsie makes her weekly visits, he hides to avoid her smooches-to no avail. She finds him and it's "KISS! KISS! on the left cheek. KISS! KISS! on the right cheek." Lipstick-smeared Andy is left saying to himself, "YUCK! YUCK!" When a broken leg keeps his auntie away for a few weeks, Andy finds he misses the affection so much that, when she returns, he is the one to offer her kisses. The pencil, collage, and digital art has an edgy style, against which the florid aunt (purple glasses, wide red smile, and BIG floral-print duds) and the big-headed, skinny nephew play their hide-and-seek game of affection. Multiple perspectives add a sense of fun to the story. The rhythmic text and repetition will make this useful as a read-aloud and good for beginning readers to tackle.—Marge Loch-Wouters, Menasha Public Library, WI

One day Andy crawls under the house among the spiderwebs. Andie waits and waits, but this time Auntie Elsie never comes. Could the sloppy kisses be better than not seeing Auntie Elsie at all?
Kiss! Kiss! Yuck! Yuck! is an absolutely adorable picturebook. Any child who has had to endure the kisses of those who love them can relate to Andy.The pencil and photo and fabric collage illustrations are playful and fun. I especially like the colorful collage of Auntie Elsie's clothes and shoes, giving her a touch of eccentricity. This is a perfect read aloud for children ages 4-8. It will elicit both groans and laughter from those boys in the room who hate mushy kisses. Adults will enjoy reading this book over and over. Highly Recommended.
I received the book at no charge from the publisher for review purposes. No financial compensation was received.
