by Amy Gibson, illustrated by Maria Van Lieshout
Feiwel and Friends, 2013. Unpaged. Picture Book
This lovely and lyrical picture book starts with a kiss, symbolized by one red dandelion seed floating off across the page. On each page thereafter, the dandelion seed makes its way through many colorful scenes, illustrating all the different kinds of kisses. The pictures in this book are graphically simple, looking almost like paper cutouts. But the wonderfully complex designs of each scene are absolutely enchanting. Children will love hunting for the one tiny red dandelion seed hidden on each page. If you are looking for a different sort of Valentine's Day book for the holidays--this might just be the right one for you.
