Amanda Adams loved Herbie Hickle. And everyone in the whole world knew it. Except Herbie Hickle.Amanda Adams Loves Herbie Hickle is an amusing story of romance in the primary grades. All Amanda's friends advise her against telling Herbie that she loves him, and each has a different reason for not telling him along with a suggestion as to what she should do instead. Amanda tries each suggestion with disastrous results. Finally, when she and Herbie are sent to the principal's office, Amanda admits what she has done and why. Amanda is punished by having to stay after school every day for a week, but the story has a happy ending because Herbie waits to walk home with her each day.
Daniel Sylvestre's colourful cartoon-style illustrations nicely complement the story.
