ESKIMO KISSES - 4th Title Published in the Books With No Pictures Series... by Sage Merriman

... Joins BOSSY PANTS, CARDBOARD BOX, and GREEN BOAT in Experiment in Children’s Publishing.

From the Amazon product page:

Book Description:

In ESKIMO KISSES two stories converge to explain rubbing-noses as a means of kissing—the Eskimo way. Share this with a child you love. It’s that kind of book. 

ESKIMO KISSES is published in the Books with No Pictures Series. As you might expect, books in this series are pictureless but maintain the familiar format of the standard picturebook. Here’s why: For beginning readers (who are used to being read to), the standard picturebook often provides the most comfortable frame of reference. Because the picturebook context is so well understood, removing the pictures (and making no other changes) draws attention to the words and shines a bright light on the path to reading.


Sage Merriman is the children’s book pen name of former small press editor and publisher, Ryan Petty. Long ago and far away, Ryan was the proprietor of Cold Mountain Press, a literary publishing house in Austin, Texas. Among the respected names he published were Allen Ginsberg, William Stafford, Wendell Berry, Robert Bly, Denise Levertov, and two future National Poets Laureate: Ted Kooser and Donald Hall. 

Here’s a link to the product page at Amazon.

Three additional titles will be published in this series by August 1st.

All seven ebooks are available now, either for immediate delivery or on a pre-order basis.

Welcome to the Brave New World of Books With No Pictures....
