by Pinkwater, Daniel Manus
Valentine's Day is coming. Mr. Salami announces that the class will be making pretty valentine cards for everyone. Big Bob and his friend Big Gloria have a big reaction. "Boring," Big Gloria whispers. She can tell that Mr. Salami's heart is not in it. Time to stir things up a bit. Enter the Magic Valentine Potato. "It brings valentines and potato chips to good children. Everybody knows that," Big Gloria tells her befuddled teacher. Valentine's Day will never be the same once Big Bob and Big Gloria--and the Magic Valentine Potato--are through with it. Beloved author Daniel Pinkwater (The Hoboken Chicken Emergency, The Big Orange Splot, etc.) makes a terrific contribution to early reading in this Hello Reader! Level 3 (Grades 1 and 2) storybook. The witty plot and unusual subject matter, coupled with age-appropriate vocabulary and sentence length, will encourage children to read and read and read! Jill Pinkwater's friendly, warm illustrations are every bit as inviting as the story. (Ages 6 to 8) --Emilie Coulter
