A gift book with humor and heart
The one thing Dolores is absolutely NOT supposed to do is touch her big sister Faye’s things. But when Faye hides a mysterious heart-shaped box, Dolores can’t stop herself from peeking inside. What she discovers is irresistible – a singing froggie Valentine’s Day necklace! What would happen if she just “borrows” it for a day? Trouble! For when the necklace disappears, Dolores must go to hilarious extremes to make things right with Faye, even enlisting the help of her long suffering cat, Duncan.

Witty text and droll pictures full of funny details give readers much to laugh at as the irrepressible Dolores learns that in matters of the heart it’s important to give as well as take.
