What if animals did what YOU do? This delightful story, the follow-up to If Animals Kissed Good Night, imagines how animals would say “I love you!"
If animals said “I love you” like we do...how would they say it? Ostrich would boom it with wings spread wide. Impala would speak with a leapity-leap. Gorilla would add a loud chest, slap-slap. And across the animal kingdom, every creature would show love in a unique way.

“Full of loving and silly animal relationships. . .This animal lovefest will appeal to fans of If Animals Kissed Goodnight.” —School Library Journal
This book stands as such an enormous icon in graphic novels. It’s so iconic in its wit and dry humor and really grabs hold of your heart as soon as you open it! Nimona follows a young shapeshifter of the same name, who is chaotic and full of whim and working hard to become an iconic villain. She enlists as a sidekick to Lord Blackheart, and the two are ready to wreak havoc! But the involvement of a hero, Sir Goldenloin, brings their battle to epic proportions while also bringing out unexpected adventures: good-deeds, kindness, and even love! Noelle Stevenson’s illustration style is so fantastic and perfectly matches the wit with which she crafts the story. This is a re-readable delight!
