Summary
Your face is a one-of-a-kind tool you use to communicate with the world. It's the first thing people see when they meet you, and it's what they use to recognize you later. On the outside, your face is what makes you, you. How much do you know about this important body part? Do you know why your features are arranged the way they are? Or how the idea of beauty differs from culture to culture? Here Donna M. Jackson, author of the acclaimed nonfiction picture book The Bone Detectives, answers these questions and presents funny, strange, and sometimes unbelievable facts about the face. Using the straightforward, journalistic style she's known for, Jackson explains the basics of our eyes, ears, mouths, and noses. Then she dives into topics ranging from unusual facial disorders to how a prosthetic eye is made. With 30 full-color photographs, a glossary, index, and detailed source notes, In Your Face is an intriguing and fresh tour of the face that will fascinate readers
