Grade 3-6-In the fourth book in the series, the students in Miss Earth's class are grappling with Valentine's Day, which is made more complicated with the arrival of four tiny young cupids that are accidentally freed from a vase they've been imprisoned in for more than 2300 years. Like all of their ilk, they use arrows to make people fall in love, so Miss Earth's students decide that she is overdue for a little romance. However, the inept archers cause her to fall in love with a frog and a television. All's well that ends well-the homesick cupids get back to Greece and Miss Earth begins (without outside help) to see the charms of a man she had previously spurned. Although the Tattletale and Copycat Clubs are still battling, this is really the story of Fawn Petros, who misses her father in far-off Antarctica. By caring for the little visitors, she begins to gain self-confidence and even learns to stand up to her sassy classmates when they casually call her "stupid." Miss Earth is made to play the fool with her cupid-wrought crushes, but her slightly acerbic professional manner and dry wit allow her to emerge with her dignity unscathed. The tongue-in-cheek humor and glimmers of real emotion in this installment will please both fervent fans and newcomers to the series.Eva Mitnick, Los Angeles Public Library
