Board book Lift-the-flap book.

A hilarious guessing game of facial reactions created by the author of bestselling This Is Not A BookJean 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. Ages 2-4
