The Yuckiest, Stinkiest, Best Valentine Ever

The Yuckiest, Stinkiest, Best Valentine Ever
Now Available!

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.
