I liked the book because i can remember the first valentine that i received from a girl. I was happy like Arthur was, but didn't want everyone to know about it. In the story, Arthur gets a valentine from his secret admirer. He didn't know yet who it exactly was. He gets another one from the same person. The second one says for him to meet her at the movies. If you read this story, you will find out who sent him the valentine.

When people tease you about things, it is best to ignore them and keep focused on your goal. I enjoyed this book very much.

A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It was a valentine day and they were sending letters to each other. One day mostly everyone was making fun of arthur because they thought that sue ellen was his secrect admire and thought that sue ellen like him and were singig arthur and his girl friend sitting in a tree kissing first comes love them comes marriage with a baby carriage. Then days passed and and he started to realized that it was not sue ellen it was another student. After that day this ticket arrived in the malebox and said row 3 seat A me the same row 3 but seat B and he was a lot confuse and something was earased in this peace of paper. I think you should read this book because let me tell you two things why he never knew who was his secret admire after a while later. Also because when he entered he sat down with his secrect admire it was not sue ellen it was this girl name francine so then arthur was like close you eyes i want to give a kiss and she was like really!!!!! andthen he left to his house and left her a heart with kisses inside of them. READ THIS BOOK AND TOU WILL LOVE EVERY SINGLE LITTLE DETAIL NOW READ HAVE FUN!!!!.
A Simpler Arthur Book - a review of "Arthur's Valentine" Nov. 16 2006
By aa-Pam - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This Arthur book has less text and a simpler story than some of the others we have read, such as "Arthur's Thanksgiving".

As is suggested by the "card catalog" review, confusion abounds when Arthur receives mystery valentines. In the process of guessing wrong, and having his valentines blown all over the school yard, Arthur is teased for having a girl friend.

Unlike other Arthur books there is no strong moral behind the story, and the characters aren't shown that teasing is wrong. Instead Arthur finds out who his mystery admirer is when he receives a movie ticket. The book ends sweetly (I guess?!) when Arthur goes to the theater, finds out who his admirer is, and leaves after promising a kiss. [He delivers multiple kisses in the form of Hersey's chocolate kisses and a heart card.]

Three Stars. Cute book. Okay artwork. Okay Read-aloud. Not a great deal of concept here, but we are talking about valentines day.

Your Secret Admirer

Arthur likes to be loved. Who doesn't? And he wants to love back. But who IS it? Well, before he finds out who his secret admirer is, he's got to go through a lot: embarrassment, teasing, and disappointment. How would you feel about a secret lover who'd put you through all that?

(You'll want to read about Arthur in other Marc Brown books.)
