From Lisa McCourt and Cyd Moore, the award-winning team who brought you I LOVE YOU, STINKY FACE, comes another adventure in the love of family.
"Mama, do you miss me so much that you're coming right home to me, NO MATTER WHAT?"
In this second STINKY FACE title, Mama is away and tells her son that nothing can keep them apart. Through the boy's lively imagination, Mama braves hungry sharks, terrible pirates, spaceships lost in time and much more to assure her son that nothing can keep her from coming home to him.
This addition to I LOVE YOU, STINKY FACE drives home the same endearing message of the undying love of a mother.

Award-winning author LISA MCCOURT has written over thirty books for children. She lives with her family in South Florida with a yard full of palm trees that get wrapped in colourful Christmas lights every winter.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-K-In this companion to I Love You, Stinky Face (BridgeWater, 1997), a little boy has some new queries for his mother. Speaking to her by telephone, he wonders when she is coming home and asks a series of questions starting with "...what if the airplane forgets how to fly?" His mother responds to each worry with a Runaway Bunny-like solution, pledging to "...hop in the basket of a hot-air balloon," "...find the speediest shark in the ocean," or "...hitch a ride on...[a] supersonic spaceship..."-all in an effort to get back to her son. Moore's detailed, full-color drawings include such exotic locales as a lush jungle, a medieval castle, and the gangplank of a pirate ship. The amusing illustrations in muted, dreamy shades spill out over the pages, reflecting the free associations of the text. Although the formula is familiar, the message is reassuring and could be used to prepare children for times when a parent is away from home.
