If there’s one thing Piper Paw hates, it’s being kissed by his doting mother, Mrs.Velvet Paw. And one day she does the unforgivable: she kisses Piper in front of his friends! “Kisses, kisses all the time,” howls Piper. “I don’t like it. I don’t want it. Good-morning kisses, licky kisses, soggy kisses!” What can Mrs Paw do? No Kiss for Mother is a charming, funny, and irreverent tale, with Ungerer's award winning illustrations.

  • No Kiss for Mother is the delightfully naughty story of mischievous kitten Piper Paw and his hatred of cuddles and kisses
  • Piper Paw is ready for anything, he’ll take apart an alarm clock to see its insides, refuse to clean his teeth and get into schoolyard scraps at the drop of a hat, but he will not – cannot – kiss his mother!
  • Ungerer’s touching short story addresses the occasional stresses and strains between parents and children with a wry humour and hilarious illustrations
