Why the Face?
Why does one girl have swirly, hypnotised eyes, and another have her fingers in her ears with her eyes scrunched shut? Turn over the glossy fold-out page and you discover that the characters’ facial expressions are because of too much screen time – 'five more minutes!' – and a noisy rock band.
This is a really great book to help children explore emotions and facial expression, with plenty of laughs and original, bold ideas and illustrations from Jullien.
We might interpret the phrase "Why the face?" to mean that someone is cross, but Jean Jullien sees it differently, as ever, in this brilliant and original board book which, because of its style and size, will appeal to older readers as well as preschoolers.
