"Do more arms mean better hugs? That's the question raised in this lighthearted contemplation of animal intimacy, Swain and Henry's follow-up to All Kinds of Kisses. ...charming." --Publishers WeeklyPraise for All Kinds of Kisses: "Swain invites readers to contemplate the types of kisses 11 animals might bestow on each other, based on their distinctive mouths, beaks, tongues, and jaws. ... What is consistent is the tenderness between the adult animals and their offspring, as captured in Henry's (It's Raining Bats and Cats) rough-edged, mid-20th-century-retro portraits. A closing spread offers additional details about the sun bears, porpoises, chubsuckers, and other features creatures." --Publishers Weekly
