About this title


More than twenty caricatures of famous faces are cut into sections, allowing readers to combine parts of each, from Groucho Marx's mustache on Princess Diana to Charlie Chaplin's hat on Marilyn Monroe

From Publishers Weekly:

Put 'em all together, they spell Z-A-N-Y: two variations on the ever-popular mix-and-match-the-pages books are full of fun. Norman Messenger's Famous Faces (Dorling Kindersley, $14.95, all ages ISBN 1-56458-686-3 Apr.) dissects such luminaries as Princess Di and Groucho Marx (HRH with a mustache? Groucho in a tiara?). Gastronomic gags are the province of 1000 Silly Sandwiches by Alan Benjamin, illustrated by Sal Murdocca (Little Simon, $8.95 ages 2-4 ISBN 0-671-89830-2 Apr.), which contains myriad (un)appetizing culinary combos ("This soggy sandwich... has hamburger and hair... and baked beans and bats").
