The Kiss That Missed is a bedtime favourite in our house. When the king is in such a hurry that his royal kiss misses his son, a blundering knight is set off to “follow that kiss!” Talented author/illustrator David Melling’s engaging characters keep the kids glued from start to finish.
I love that this isn’t your typical dragon and knight story and has a tender message that bedtimes and reading are special. The ultimate message in this story is for us grown ups to slow down.
