Sam is just sick of that yucky love thing. Everywhere he looks people are hugging and kissing – it’s disgusting! There’s only one thing for it. Sam hops on his bicycle to get away – as far away as he can. But even in the depths of the jungle and on the floor of the ocean there’s no escape . . .

A funny, touching tale about the universal need for love.

I was looking for a good Valentine's Day story to share with my nephew and I thought this one was just cute. The illustrations are pretty, the story was fun. I really liked it.

My six-year-old niece Bella really wanted to add something to Goodreads so I told her to go get her favorite book and we'd add it to our Read Shelf. She came bounding down the stairs carrying "That Yucky Love Thing".
Me: How many stars do you want to give the book? (I proceeded to tell her what each star represents.)
Bella: All the stars. It's better than amazing. I love it. It love it so, so much!
Me: Yuck, YUCK, double Y-U-C-K!

This book has been a smash hit with our famil

This is an adorable story about a little boy who is tired of seeing everyone loving each other. He thinks that hugs and hand holding are yucky! Eventually, he finds a crush and holds her hand.
This is one of those cutesy books that probably didn't make it big, but is cute for adults to read and smile while you're waiting in line at the B&N.
This is a sweet book aout a boy who is sick of love but ends up falling in love himself. This is a good book for little kids.
cute book for kids, specially those little ones who don't like holding hands/hugs/kisses =p
