Funny Face

Publisher: Bloomsbury Children's Books

Review

A little boy and his dog are happily playing ball when suddenly a bear appears and steals it away. Going from surprised to angry, then frightened to happy when the bear returns with friends and plays with him, the child's face reflects his emotions. Each episode is also watched by a familiar garden insect.

This board book for the youngest readers has bright, funny bold drawings and a simple text exploring a considerable variety of feelings, all eventually happily resolved. A foil mirror at the end of the book allows readers see their own funny face, and to practise the little boy’s expressions on the pages which alternate with the story.
