Phaidon

Why The Face?

$ 14.95

 Jean Jullien tickles the funnybone once again with a book of facial  overreactions. Faces are presented first, allowing the reader to wager  predictions of what may have prompted such an expression, before the  dramatic answer is revealed. Why the face? reads the text  alongside an agitated boy with eyes and nose scrunched up. Pick up the  full-page flap to reveal a whole mess of smelly items, from stinky socks  to an oozing trash can, and the text, Whoa, that stinks.  Jullien masterfully provides enough clues for the reader to piece  together the narrative, including both predictable and surprising  scenarios. Based on young children's natural fascination with faces,  this book encourages readers to practice empathy and build emotional  intelligence, with cleverly simplified and humorously satisfying  vignettes. A brilliant addition to Phaidon's growing Jean Jullien board  book library.
