From acclaimed author Ziggy Hanaor (Alte Zachen, Alex and Alex and The Pocket Chaotic) comes this heartwarming story about the power of affection to lighten up even the darkest of days.
Gory Rory Fangface is having a terrible day and everything is going wrong. First, he ran out of cereal and then his favourite jumper was in the wash and then it rained on the way to school. Does Gory Rory need a kiss? No, he most certainly DOESN’T.

The day gets progressively worse; he’s forgotten his homework, it’s egg salad for lunch, and then mum is late for pick-up. A kiss perhaps? NO WAY.

On the way home it rains again, there’s homework to finish and the internet is down. Gory Rory has reached the end of his tether – it really has been the WORST DAY EVER. But sometimes… just sometimes… when you really really need them… kisses can make it all better.

What I Liked: Author Ziggy Hanaor does a fantastic job of encapsulating what a terrible day would be for a young child as well as showing that a little bit of love can make a big difference. The illustrations also do a wonderful job of capturing the emotions of the story.
