If there's a more inopportune date for an elementary school boy to have a birthday than February 14th, Aldo Zelnick wants to know what it is. With his 11th birthday-and Valentine's Day-fast approaching, Aldo plans a guys-only party with absolutely no pink, lace, or hearts, thank you very much. But what will happen if the girls, who all seem to have a crush on Aldo's friend, Danny, crash the party? In this story, told in part by Aldo's friend-who-happens-to-be-a-girl, Bee, Aldo learns early that love means always having to say you're sorry. The humorous plot and lively drawings in this laugh-out-loud book will captivate enthusiastic and reluctant readers alike. This ninth installment in an A-to-Z alphabet series also includes a glossary of fun and challenging "I words," such as inkling, irk, and impervious.
