For readers who think Valentines Day is too sappy, Bunting and Zimmer have an ideal antidote. Thats because Mr. Goats idea of the perfect gifts for his first love include ragweed salad in a rusty can and two-year-old rotten eggs. Guaranteed foul and disgusting, says the proud vendor. Zimmer playfully emphasizes the storys gross-out moments in his exaggerated, vibrantly colored illustrations, and Bunting keeps the target of Mr. Goats affections secret until the final page. Suffice it to say that mothers will be happier to receive this book than, say, a box of black and oozing rotten eggs. Ages 57. Illustrators agent: Lori Nowicki, Painted Words. (Jan.)
