Amazing Faces

By Robyn Hood Black

Lee Bennett Hopkins’s Amazing Faces, (Lee and Low), illustrated by the award-winning Chris Soentpiet, amazing himself, lives up to its title. . . . the collection of sixteen poems offers insights into various lives, from babyhood to old age. Sontpiet’s light-drenched paintings reflect such joy and dignity you will find yourself smiling back at them. Text and art are so perfectly suited, what shines through even more than the gorgeous, different colors of skin are the shared experiences of humanity. . . . This volume will be treasured by kids and adults alike, frequently flying off library shelves. Read, Write, Howl—Robyn Hood Black
