How would a grasshopper kiss?

Whichever it is, this much is true. When we say goodnight, I love all kinds of kisses from you

Swain (Gifted) invites readers to contemplate the types of kisses 11 animals might bestow on each other, based on their distinctive mouths, beaks, tongues, and jaws. A grasshopper's mouth, for instance, is "like scissors for chopping up leaves.... How would a grasshopper kiss?" Swain's text sticks to a rhythmic cadence that's easy to fall into, though her rhyme schemes are less consistent. 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. Ages 48. Author's agent: Kerry Sparks, Levine Greenberg Rostan Literary. Illustrator's agent: Robin Rue, Writers House. (Dec.)
