The Boy of a Thousand Faces

by

The Boy of a Thousand Faces Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Because Alonzo King was born on Halloween, he has always loved monsters. But no one would ever guess that he lives in a haunted house with a graveyard out back, communicates with the dead, turns into a six-armed, slime-covered creature, or is a walking encyclopedia on horror films! However, when The Beast arrives, not even Alonzo can track it down. Will he be able to solve the mystery of the creature stalking his town and make his dream of becoming The Boy of a Thousand Faces come true?

Review:

"Selznick's closely focused, black-and-white illustrations are more impressive than his narrative." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"This suspenseful book is a fine read-aloud and an excellent choice for reluctant readers." School Library Journal

Review:

"Readers will practically hear the sinister organ music rising behind this tribute to the ghoulish delights of monster mania and those old black and white screamers — the cover and the interior illustrations guarantee a ready-made audience. Nicely done." Kirkus Reviews
