Goopy, the main character, is ready to celebrate Valentine's Day. He has planned and decorated beautifully but something is missing. He doesn't have a friend to share this special day with and that makes him sad. The book opens with, "Our goopy, gooey orange ghost/Was feeling very glum." He decides to call upon Cupid and his magical arrows to help him find just the right friend to join in his celebration. His new friend does materialize but....then....the tale turns into a fabulous adventure of run away horses, search and rescue and just plain, all around, fun.
The illustrations are colourful, whimsical and animated bringing the text alive. The bold colours and expressions of the characters will be a big hit with a younger audience.
