Little Faces: Don't Wake the Tiger by Carles Ballesteros


Little Faces: Don't Wake the Tiger by Carles Ballesteros

A series of animal books for young readers that combines simple storytelling with venetian movements, which have the magical effect of changing faces and expressions on animal faces when the reader turns each page. Magical paper technology meets playful storytelling in this lovely series that's sure to captivate younger children. Each book encourages children to get involved in the animal characters and situations they're in, while offering satisfying twists at the end. Simply by turning the page, the Venetian movement causes the animals' expressions to change from sad to happy, tearful to joy, sleeping to wakefulness. The effect is both fun and exciting, and an effective way of both enhancing storytelling and learning about different facial expressions and the emotions they convey.
