The Children’s Book Review

Even boys will fall in love with this valentine!
Reading level: Ages 3-8
Hardcover: 32 pages
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.
