Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Even boys will fall in love with this valentine!

Leon has a crush. A let-her-cut-in-line-at-the-water-fountain kind of crush. And he's got the perfect valentine. But this valentine has no intention of getting caught up in any romantic conspiracy. "Love is yucky, kid! Valentine's Day is all about CANDY!" the card yells at Leon, before leaping out the window and running away, leaving Leon to chase it across town, collecting interested kids along the way.

Here is a hilarious take on the holiday that boys love to hate, the most complex holiday of them all. Saying "I love you" has never been so yucky or so sweet.

Review:

"Floppy-haired Leon is wrestling with his heart — literally. When he creates a valentine heart for his crush, the wide-eyed card takes off running through Arnold's comic book — style spreads. 'You give me to Zoey Maloney and we'll be the laughingstock of the whole school!' insists the freaked-out valentine. Kids on the playground offer their perspectives on love, ranging from 'Eew!' to concern: 'But does Zoey Maloney love you back?' Ferber sticks to traditional gender dynamics (the boys respond to news of Leon's crush with disgust, while the girls swoon), but she also navigates the palm-sweating sweetness of first love with tenderness, humorously echoed by Arnold's nervy graphics. Ages 3 — up. Agent: Caryn Wiseman, Andrea Brown Literary Agency." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

In the old growth forest, a dashing Bigfoot prince searches for his Bigfoot princess. Rrrrrella, who also lives in the forest, would be a perfect match. But can she get past her ugly stepsisters to win the prince's heart? Full-color illustrations.
