Every February 14 we exchange cards and flowers as expressions of love. Valentine's Day is among our most popular holidays, But what do the words "Be my valentine" mean? Who was Valentine? We know he lived in third-century Rome, during the reign of Claudius II. We know that he was a Christian priest. But he lived during a period of military anarchy, when many of Rome's records were destroyed. The facts of Valentine's life have been lost to history. What survive, however, are legends. And legends often contain the residue of truth. Ann Tompert beautifully weaves together the most enduing stories of Valentine to create a tapestry of the saint's life, while Kestutis Kasparivicius's illustrations take the reader back to ancient Rome. Together, author and illustrator pierce the historical fog that surrounds Saint Valentine to offer a glimpse of the man whose life remains a mystery.

Ann Tompert has written many award-winning books for children, including the picture book biographies, Saint Nicholas, Joan of Arc, and Saint Patrick. She lives in Port Huron, Michigan.

Kestutis Kasparavicius has illustrated more than thirty books for children, including Ann Tompert's Pied Piper of Peru. In 1993, he was honored as Illustrator of the Year by the Bologna Book Fair. He lives in Vilnius, Lithuania.
