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.

This book was OK, the illustrations were really good, but the story did not make much sense. I dislike books that children disrespect their families and in my opinion that what the protagonist Sam does at the beginning to his elders and throughout the book he just complains. I wouldn't read this book to my class.

I got this from my best friend as a wedding present. Since hubby and I often say gag, barf, puke, vomit, etc after being sappy with each other this was pretty appropriate :-)

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
I Loved this book, YUCK!! It was cute and the pictures were so interesting!! And even the ending was..yuck...held love..yuck!!!Look for the Robot! A most read for little boys who don't like hugs or kisses!!

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.
