What Does Bookroo Think of This Book

“A cute and simple Valentine’s book perfect for dino lovers and best friends.”

Stutzman and Fleck’s adorable tyrannosaurus rex Tiny returns for a book that delivers exactly what one might expect from the title—a solid (if somewhat cheesy) book that’s perfect for Valentine’s Day. Tiny is on a mission to create the perfect valentine for his best friend Pointy, and despite things not working out as he envisions (in a very cute chalkboard blueprint, complete with fireworks!), he sticks with it, making attempt after attempt. When all he ends up with is a big mess (glitter!) and no card to give Pointy, Tiny feels down in the dumps until his best friend reminds him that Tiny himself is the best valentine a friend could ask for. The teal and red color scheme pops throughout, tying together Tiny and Pointy’s scales, and the story is predictable, but sweet.
