Product Description


Pure delight. (Carousel)

On David's previous books:

'It's funny and original and an absolute delight to read aloud - a perfect bedtime read.'


An ideal bedtime book ... This delightful tale is a true charmer ... Melling's witty illustrations are packed with imaginative detail, including the masterly touch of a delicate golden line tracing the swerling path of the kiss. (The Scotsman)

Full of unexpected twists and turns The Kiss That Missed is a wonderful literary example of how to temper fearsome episdoes with humour. ... this story is one which will demand endless rereading. (

A deliciously written, illustrated and presented book. The Scallywags are a pack of wolves, always late, clumsy and smelly, causing the other animals to decide life is better without them. However, when they tidy themselves up, they become so clean, tidy and polite their detractors no longer recognise them! The text humorously celebrates difference and tolerance and the wonderfully energetic, funny illustrations deserve careful attention. (

...David Melling's touch is light but this is a thought-provoking and refreshing storyline. (The Guardian)

...exuberant pictures... impressive (Publishers Weekly)

This is a lovely book and David Melling's illustrations are excellent. (

David Melling's touch is light but this is at thought-provoking and refreshing storyline. (The Guardian)

A fun story about acceptance with really amusing pictures (Northern Echo)
