Author/photographer Arlene Alda has produced yet another brilliantly simple rhyming safari -- this time in search of faces in unusual places. These faces are found on buildings, in trees, mailboxes, and fountains. Coy, funny, grumpy, comical, or sad, they are almost anywhere a child's imagination wants to go. Whimsical text heightens the search and helps us find the unusual characters who are quietly gathered all around us. Alda's unique through-the-lens perceptions will launch young children on a visual adventure that just might be hard to return from. The easy-to-read text and trampe d'oeil photos make Here a Face, There a Face perfect for the young or young at heart. Images removed. This is Arlene Alda's third, and perhaps her most clever photographic essay. Look for The Book of ZZZs and Did You Say Pears?
