Annotations for Yuckiest, Stinkiest, Best Valentine Ever


Baker & Taylor
A young boy named Leon pursues a runaway Valentine meant for his true love, Zoey Maloney.

Baker & Taylor
Developing a major crush on a girl just in time for Valentine's Day, Leon buys her a valentine card that comes to life, announces that the holiday is all about candy, and runs away, prompting a zany chase through town, in a whimsical story told through comic-style illustrations.

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.
