Children's Book Alert:
Apparently, Valentine's Day is coming soon. I know this because all of the fixtures and promotions at work declare the holiday with an unnatural fervour. One book we are celebrating this month (that is, it joins the ranks of all the other pink and red books that feature hearts or the word 'love' in the title upon our promotional table at the department's entrance) has caught my particular fancy, and I am posting it here. Observe it's ornate cover illustration. And read it. It is sweetly funny. It will make you smile.
