Martha, Caroline, T.D., Truman and Helen are all looking forward to making Valentine's Day cards. However, Skits has another idea in mind - throwing snowballs. When the craft supplies for making the cards turn up missing, the hunt is on - someone has hidden them. As the friends begin to argue, Martha quickly discovers the real culprit of the craft thief and is able to "save" Valentine's Day!

This is a great Valentine's Day story for you middle-readers. By introducing Martha as a new character series, you'll likely find a hit and an inspiration behind further reading in a hesitant reader!
