Review: I Love You, Too

Whatever you did this Valentine's Day - whatever you received - I sincerely hope you heard the words I Love You. I also hope you gave or received a book - after all, it's International Book Giving Day and we at KBR do love giving or receiving a good book!

Enter a good book.

Stephen Michael King, king of gorgeousness - both in terms of words and image - gives us I Love You, Too - a romp through all kinds of days from windy days and grey sky days to tumbling, rolling, big grassy hill days.

Our little friends return from King's first book entitled You, a story of love and friendship, to take us through these every kinds of day. And while days may be all sorts of different, one thing remains the same. Yes, it has to do with love. And there's not even a shred of schmaltz in sight.


Another eye-fest for both children and adults, this is a must for fans of Stephen Michael King but it's also a book for anyone with an eye for glorious image, simple, lollipop-in-the mouth wordage that makes you feel like a child again - and a storyline that makes you smile . . . and touches the heart.

This Valentine's Day, I Love You, Too does all of this and more.
