The Magic Kiss

by Bon Balu

Follow the magic kiss and watch it become a sleepy yawn!

Join this calming, joyful journey of love that begins with a kiss. Follow it as it sails out to sea, swims with fish, floats with clouds and dances with elephants, and then see the moon transform it into a loving yawn that’s passed from friend to friend and all the way to you!

Bon Balu’s dreamy text and illustrations encourage sleepyheads to slow down and feel safe, creating a loving, soothing bedtime ritual for all.

About the Author

Bon Balu is a commercial artist by trade and a creative director in brand development and communication based in Mullumbimby, NSW. She’s always written and illustrated and after many years of development, and after becoming a mother to two small boys, has decided to focus her stories and expressions into a world for kids. Bon Balu is that world, one that centres around happy habits and rituals. Bon Balu’s signature style is a mix of painterly, mid-century irreverence: bold design, wordplay, expressive characters, statement palettes, and hand-lettered type.
