I Love You, Stinky Face

I Love You, Stinky Face

by Lisa McCourt Illustrated by Cyd Moore

As a mother lovingly tucks her child into bed, the imaginative child has...just a few questions. For instance, "What if I were an alligator with big, sharp teeth that could bite your head off?"

This unstoppably devoted mother will have readers laughing out loud as she replies to one question after another. Never was a parent's unconditional love so creatively tested...or so beautifully reassured!

Illustrations by award-winning artist Cyd Moore perfectly capture the mood of this unique bedtime story.
