Sometimes a father's kiss can leave a big impression.

Featuring the illustrations of Victoria Marble and the rhyming verse of Paul Schreck, Prickly Kisses is a fun journey through the joys and challenges of being cuddled and kissed by a dad with a mustache. Sometimes his whiskers are long and soft, other times they're trimmed too short and feel scratchy. They can even grow bushy and seem to dance on their own. One day, they might even be waxed into fancy handlebars! No matter how furry, though, a kiss from a loving dad is always cherished.

About the Author

Paul A. Schreck is a new author but a life-long storyteller. The idea for Prickly Kisses was planted 40 years ago when he and his wife, Karen, were new teachers. Every morning, they would entrust their new baby to the wonderful care of K. Rudy. Before leaving, he would plant a mustachioed kiss on their infant's cheek, and Mrs. Rudy would exclaim with great delight, "Prickly kisses! Prickly kisses!" A few months later, in a continuing education class for teachers about children's literature, he was tasked with writing a children's story, and Prickly Kisses was born.Paul holds a Bachelor of Music Education and a Master of Divinity. When not writing, he can be found camping, bird watching, and, of course, reading.

Victoria Marble is an author-illustrator with a passion for lively and colorful storytelling. She holds a general studies associate of arts degree with an emphasis on arts & humanities, as well as an associate of science in electronic game art and design.Victoria lives in Nevada with her husband and daughter and three little dogs. When not drawing, reading, or writing, Victoria enjoys watching movies with her daughter, eating dessert, and drinking coffee or tea. Victoria adores creating art that emphasizes the beauty of nature-and particularly birds, fish, insects, and floral designs, along with cute children and animal characters.
