The super-secret valentine  Cover Image Book Book

The super-secret valentine / by Katrina Moore ; illustrations by Zoe Si.

Moore, Katrina, (author.). Si, Zoe, (illustrator.).


"Bessie Lee goes all out for Valentine's Day in the second book of the Teeny Houdini chapter book series from author Katrina Moore and illustrator Zoe Si. The adventures of Teeny Houdini come in short, easy-to-read chapters full of hilarious illustrations--a favorite series for building confident readers! Bessie is in charge of making an extra-special valentine for the new kid in school. Something big and wonderful to make him feel welcome! Bessie's plan includes glitter, tape, plus a little extra magic to make this a Valentine's Day no one will forget. Teeny Houdini, also known as Bessie Lee, is an overly excited, mischievous first grader who bounces off the walls--and off the page--with her volume, enthusiasm, and grand ideas, which are just too big for her tiny frame. Bessie's multigenerational Chinese American family is the warm center of the stories, from exasperated but loving big sister Bailey to the always encouraging and understanding Gramma. Kid-friendly and engaging, the Teeny Houdini series is a good fit for early chapter book readers. And as a bonus, kids learn the real and simple steps to a different magic trick in each book!"--provided by publisher.
