Synopsis

Funny Face by Anna Walker

Everyone can make a face. Sam makes a happy face. Olive makes a sad face. Lucy makes a surprised face. Milly makes an angry face. Joe makes a sleepy face. Tess makes a scary face. Charlie makes a bunny face. And they all make...a funny face! Which face can you make? Educational potential - perfectly pitched at an audience coming to grips with basic concepts and relationships, in this case dress-ups, categories, parties, facial expressions and emotions. The illustrations are clear, and the bright bold blocks of color make this appropriate for even the youngest child. As with Froggy Green Anna has drawn little kids she knows and has portrayed them with unequaled affection and hum our. It's impossible not to love Sam, Ollie, Lucy, Milly, Joe, Tess and Charlie...She really is one of the most talented illustrators working for this age group and her profile is already growing - with a commercial success in Santa's Aussie Holiday, several lines of cards and a series of Christmas decorations based on her characters as well as an independent 'cult' profile with The Muggy Tree.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
