Feast Your Eyes - Book 1
A book aimed at primary school children, Feast
Your Eyes moves away from the conventional colours and numbers learning
books and focuses on peoples emotions and how facial expressions, especially
eyes, tell us what someone is feeling or thinking. The
basic emotions covered includes suprise, anger, happiness, sadness, pain and
tiredness. Throughout the book the reader can only see the character's eyes
and has to guess what they are feeling before folding back the flaps to reveal
the character's entire face and the answer.
Olly, the lead character, is startled in the
middle of the night by a loud sound and goes to investigate. He is saddened
at the sight of seeing his favourate plant knocked to the floor, and angered
when discovering his best marbles scattered across the living room carpet.
When moving into the kitchen an apple is knocked down from an above cudboard
and hits Olly on the head, inflicting a little pain. Having dicovered
the location of the intruder, Olly opens up the cudboard to discover that
all the comotion was caused by his pet cat, Hazel, making him feel relieved
and happy, and then tired at realising the time before going
back to bed.
