"In Hello, Cutie!: Adventures in Cute Culture, Pamela Klaffke explores the cute phenomenon which many feel is exploding in our culture right now. From food, edible or inedible, to fashion, baby animals, and comics, Hello, Cutie! covers cute, vintage and contemporary. But primarily, Hello, Cutie! is a book about cute collectibles themselves and those who make and collect the cute as well."

But in a good way — I swear. Entitled Hello, Cutie!: Adventures in Cute Culture, the book was not only charming but so engaging that I just had to interview its author, Pamela Klaffke.
