The star of Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse is back with a tasty treat in this sprightly, warmhearted board book from Kevin Henkes.
Decked in fuzzy green slippers and pink housecoat, a crown-wearing Lilly has one Valentine's Day chocolate heart and wants to keep it safe. Unfortunately, several locales aren't quite right: under the bed is dusty, inside the dresser is messy, and behind the radiator is warm. Where will she put it? Not to worry, for with a look of satisfied resolution, Lilly decides the best place is right in her tummy.
An ideal, simple read for Valentine's Day -- and any occasion that asks for a witty story with a stellar character -- Henkes's board book is sure to keep kids smiling broadly. Lilly's candy dilemma will resonate with any child who's experienced the shocking dismay of having only one piece of candy left, but they'll quickly understand that Lilly's solution has its sweet rewards. A delicious addition to Henkes's original board books, which include Wemberly's Ice-Cream Star and Julius's Candy Corn. Matt Warner
