The Yuckiest, Stinkiest, Best Valentine Ever by Brenda Ferber
A very funny, Valentine-themed spoof on the story of the Gingerbread Man. Kids will fall in love with this story of the runaway valentine (bearing the message "Dear Zoey Maloney, I love you. Love, Leon"), as he escapes from Leon yelling, "Love is yucky. Stinky too. It will turn your brain to Goo!" Tedd Arnold illustrations add to the fun.

The Ballad of Valentine (Picture Puffin Books (Paperback)) by Alison Jackson
A very funny parody of "My Darling Clementine." Even if the kids don't understand all of the vocabulary, they'll get the gist, and they'll love it if you sing! Extra points if you can play it, too, but you'll need a page turner to show the funny illustrations.
