Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

What a truly enjoyable, beautifully illustrated story! It tells the story of Gabby Ann going to bed and wanting kisses and hugs not only from her Mum but also from her Dad who is working far away. This happens to many children for many reasons, for instance if one of their parent’s is in the armed services as happened to members of the author’s family. In those situations a story like this will really help reassure the child that, although far away, their parent still loves them and is sending kisses and hugs to them. The story is beautifully and sensitively written, the adventures of the kisses and hugs will have the child smiling and when they eventually reach the sleeping child is delightful.
A charming book that whilst terrific for all children will be of particular relevance to any who have a parent away from home for any reason. The colourful illustrations enhance the tale and although Gabby Ann is a girl, the adventures with different animals will appeal to children regardless of gender.Xs and Os for Gabby Ann
