Gory Rory Fangface Needs a Kiss

  • Gory Rory is having a TERRIBLE day, and the LAST thing he needs is a KISS.


    Everything is going wrong for Gory Rory Fangface. First, he ran out of cerealand then his favourite jumper was in the wash and then it rained on the wayto school. Does Gory Rory need a kiss? No, he most certainly DOESN’T.


    The day gets progressively worse; he’s forgotten his homework, it’s egg saladfor lunch, and then mum is late for pick-up. A kiss perhaps? NO WAY.


    On the way home it rains again, there’s homework to finish and the internetis down. Gory Rory has reached the end of his tether – it really has been the WORST DAY EVER. But sometimes... just sometimes... when you really reallyneed them... kisses can make it all better.


    A heartwarming story about the power of affection to lighten up even thedarkest of days.



    "Readers, like the protagonist, should find themselves feeling mollified, fortified, and ready for a new day." - Publishers Weekly
