The title is catchy. It takes Doug Long to write about this subject, kissing, what we have always taken for granted! The short stories are really cute! And the art work is great -- very funny. I took advantage of the coupon offer; suggest you do the same and enjoy his wit and humour, as Carol mentions below.

What a great book - for people who want a fun read, people who love wit and humour, or even people who are too busy or overwhelmed to delve into a novel but still need to read! You may find it inspires you to try to write one yourself!

Kept me very amused in this clever 55 word format of fast sketches and quick witticisms. Light and flavourful for mental breaks -- very recommended.

"The Fool Who Invented Kissing" is a blast. The many permutations and combinations of 55 word stories kept me amused and counting. I could imagine this book not only as the basis for writing exercises in schools but also for party games. For example, people could work together in groups or individually and the best story would win. Doug Long's book will stimulate your imagination and is a delightfully fun read.
