She loves him.
She loves him not.

Wilhemina is the new girl in class. As soon as Norman sees her, he knows he'd do anything for her. But Norman isn't the only one who likes Wilhemina. And he's not even the biggest or the toughest guy around. Norman decides the only way Wilhemina will notice him is if he makes her a valentine. Then the other boys learn his plan and try to stop Norman. Will Norman ever get Wilhemina to be his valentina?Norman Noggs is in love. But the course of true love never did run smooth, and our hamster hero faces many trials in his quest to win the fair Wilhelmina. He lifts weights, becomes a frustrated Valentine-maker, and even runs up against the class bullies, who also have a crush on the object of his affection. It looks like Normans in deep least until a karate-chopping stranger who looks a lot like Wilhelmina comes to his rescue. Sprinkled with poems, candy hearts, and Marsha Winborns lacy collage art, Valiska Gregory wraps warm prose around a tender message at the heart of Valentines Day: that the heart of the valentine maker is far more important than the valentine.
