Funny Face by Nicola Smee


Funny Face by Nicola Smee

A little boy is happily playing with his dog and his football, when he's suddenly confronted by a big bear, who runs off with his ball! Experiencing a whole range of emotions, the little boy makes a lot of funny faces during the course of this charming book, and the reader is encouraged to copy him. Young ones will adore pulling all the hilarious expressions - particularly when they see how funny they themselves look in the surprise mirror on the last page. A delightful, interactive first storybook, packed with fun and ideal for little hands to hold!
