The Yuckiest, Stinkiest Valentine’s Day of All Time

Love is in the air…especially for Leon! Why? Because Leon has a major crush on Zoey Maloney. A let-her-cut-in-line-at-the-water-fountain crush. So naturally, this Valentine’s Day is going to be the best ever! Right?

Well…right after Leon finishes making his valentine for Zoey (in which he confesses his love), the perfectly cut heart leaps from his hand and starts screaming!

“Love is yucky, kid!” the valentine yells. “Valentine’s Day is all about candy!”

And with that, it runs away (as fast as it possibly can).

Leon chases his valentine through the park, past the playground, and down the road, all while his valentine yells, “Love is yucky. Stinky too. It will turn your brain to GOO!”

This fantastic read-aloud has the perfect mix of Valentine’s Day fun and hilarious action to please everyone. Plus, with illustrations by Tedd Arnold, the pictures alone will have you laughing out loud.
