The Barnes & Noble Review
Celebrate love in all its glorious shapes and sizes with bestselling author Sandra Boynton. This cheerful romp through one of life's greatest gifts explores the many faces of the oft-discussed sentiment. Boynton shows us "love perhaps foolish" (a hippo dives head-first into a layer cake) and "love despairing" (a lowly rabbit waiting by the phone). There's "love problematic" (two porcupines staring tenderly at each other) and "love mysterious" (a cloaked elephant presents a heart to another).

Spare but spirited rhyming text ("A love that appreciates fire, and grace./ A love that adores / one remarkable face./ A love that is steady, devoted, and true -- / Consider my love for incredible you") lets the humor and beauty of the illustrations shine through. Boynton's signature use of fluid lines and unforgettable facial expressions allows readers to relate to every adorable animal. Their passion, frustration, bravery, eloquence, and hope are all ours to enjoy and embrace. Finally, we see all of Boynton's creatures together as the book comes to an end, and we are shown the true meaning of love.

A superlative gift for your special someone. (Amy Barkat)

Sandra Boynton has done it again with a sweet, charming love poem that is good for kids, loved ones and any one you love. I strongly recommend this, especially for sweet hearts, and significant others. Husband will win brownie points if they buy this for their wife!
