David A. Carter has created an extremely imaginative pop-up dedicated to love. The book has seven spreads, each with a verse and a pop-up of different geometrical and abstract forms. Scattered among the pop-ups are hearts, some tiny and some large. There are hearts dangling from strings, hearts hidden in a forest, and hearts captured by the colors of the rainbow. Readers will be amazed by the final pop-up—an explosion of red foil hearts! The cover, too, sports red foil.

This tribute to love is sure to please sweethearts, young and old, throughout the years.


"Love bursts up in paper waves and swirls from every spread of this small, heartfelt keepsake. In a spectacular 3-D valentine, Carter gives visual expression to an array of loving sentiments . . . The Picasso of paper engineering does it again."
Kirkus Reviews
"Carter pairs abstracted and at times almost architectural pop-ups with a love poem stocked with metaphors."
Publishers Weekly
