It's Valentine's Day in the Dumping Ground and Tracy Beaker is very scornful of all the fuss made about cards and presents . . . until she gets one herself!

Weedy Peter has decided he wants Tracy to be his Valentine and he's given her his beloved nan's treasured gold locket. Tracy is over the moon – it must be worth a fortune! What could she sell it for . . . or swap it for . . .?

This hilarious Tracy Beaker short story was written exclusively for the 2009 Red Nose Day campaign and a portion of the proceeds supported Comic Relief.
