Who’s your Valentine?

I Love Kissing You, by Davide Cali and Serge Bloch, is a 'picture book for grown ups'

ST VALENTINE’S DAY (14 February) is coming soon and we have two books that make ideal Valentine’s Day gifts by the wonderful Davide Cali, who will be touring Australia in May.

I Love Kissing You is an inventive ‘picture book for grown-ups’, which takes the form of a witty and passionate speech delivered by a man to the woman in his life.

Waxing lyrically, he recalls the many kisses they have shared in many exciting locations and circumstances, and expresses hopes for kisses still to come.

Illustrated by award-winning artist Serge Bloch, this sumptuous clothbound hardback is the ultimate gift for that special someone, keeping you turning the pages until its hilarious and unexpected finale.

What is this thing called love? (illustrated by Anna Laura Cantone) is a delightful and subtle attempt to explain love to kids – not just romantic love, but the love that binds homes and families together.

‘This is the kind of picture book that gets worn out just from being read, poured over, and loved to death,’

said the Sunday Tasmanian.

Little Emma really wants to know what love is, so asks each member of her family. Not surprisingly, everyone has a slightly different idea of what love is, depending on who they are. In the end, Emma learns that love is revealed in what we do for each other, just as much as it is in what we say.

Talk to your local bookseller, or preview and order both titles from the Wilkins Farago website now.
