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.
