Synopsis

She writes me love poems, full of words like adore. Then she sticks on red hearts, she bought at the store.



A hilarious rhyming story about a little boy who is fed up with the loving attentions of the little girl who sits next to him. But when the girl in question, Jennifer Jones, goes away, our hero realises how much he misses her. Soon he's the one buying red hearts at the store.



You'll fall in love too with this heart-warming and highly amusing story coupled with Neal Layton's witty and quirky illustrations.



Winner of the Sheffield Children's Book Award 2004, The Stockport Children's Book Award 2004 and the Portsmouth Children's Book Award 2005.
