Product Description

This tongue-in-cheek, rhymed story is a hilarious gift for young and old. Features UnValentine cards in the back of the book!

Lily doesn’t believe in love. Within her journal she chronicles her intolerance of cutesy Valentines and mocks the idiots who send them. Yes, Lily doesn’t believe in love UNTIL…

"Exactly mid-way through the frigid month of February

A day is celebrated by the dumb and ordinary.

And all around me, notes are passed by idiots and stupids--

Packed tight with sugar-mottoed hearts and naked pudgy cupids.

This ritual, conducted under heart-shaped, crimson flag,

Does absolutely nothing for me, but to make me gag!"

This is a cute book, especially for someone who is not a fan of Valentine's Day. The artwork is great, and it's told more like a poem. Quirky, original and fun. This also make a great little gift for friends, co-worker, family, etc.

I bought this book because the other review had such great things to say about. My preteen didn't like the book at all. The pages are one liners or quick poems. The book is a quick 2 minute read. Now even at a bargain price I wish I hadn't purchased it.

The unValentine - a great affordable gift

This book would make a wonderful Valentine's gift for both young and old. It has superb artwork surrounding an endearing story about a young girl and how she comes to appreciate her own special Valentine. It is the perfect size for gift giving, only slightly lager than a traditional Valentine's card. It even has catchy grade-school style Valentine's in the back of the book. Two thumbs up for Valentine's Day. This book may soon become the quintessential hallmark Valentine's story.
