Gerry is very excited – Valentine’s Day is coming (which is a Fairy Princess’ favorite day of the year)! She works her hardest to make the best, sparkliest (is that a word?), Valentines ever for her classmates. She puts her perfect hand-made Valentines in one of her Daddy’s green work folders to keep them safe. But when she gets to school, there is a BIG problem. The folders got switched and her very perfect Valentines are at work with Daddy (how UN-sparkly)! Gerry thinks fast and solves her problem in a very fairy princess way! This is a VERY cute book! I like the sparkles that are with Gerry. They are VERY cool (in a Fairy Princess sort of way ;) ). I like the illustrations they are VERY well drawn! Gerry is a great character (even with me being a boy, I don’t mind all the sparkle and my sister LOVES all the sparkle)! Gerry is VERY kind, VERY sweet, VERY caring, and VERY VERY creative! I think this is a great Valentine’s Day book that kids will love! **Note a reviewed a copy of this book my sister got as a gift :D
