The Yuckiest, Stinkiest, Best Valentine Ever
Leon has a crush. A secret crush. A dreamy crush. A let-her-cut-in-line-at-the-water-fountain-crush. And he's made the perfect valentine. But the valentine has other ideas. "Love is yucky, kid! Valentine's Day is all about candy!" the card yells before leaping out the window and running away, leaving Leon to chase it across town, collecting interested kids along the way.
Saying "I love you" has never been so yucky or so sweet.
"...a boisterous, just-sweet-enough comic caper."
"A laugh-out-loud, fast-paced adventure... Get this now—It's better than candy!" Starred review
"With its creative story line and upbeat writing, this picture book is a must for holiday collections."
"Navigates the palm-sweating sweetness of first love with tenderness, humorously echoed by Arnold's nervy graphics."
