Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Several books promise safari excitement to readers of varying ages and abilities. For the youngest, Face to Face Safari by Sally Hewitt, illus. by Chris Gilvan-Cartwright, features six big, vividly colored pop-ups of the heads of an elephant, lion, etc.; when the pages are opened, the animals' faces will loom larger than the readers'. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
A selection of African animals (an elephant, a lion, a giraffe, a rhinoceros, a hippopotamus, and a chimpanzee) pop up from the centers of six spreads in this British import. While the brief rhymed text is uninspired, and there are no surprises in the paper engineering, the animals' heads-particularly the elephant and the lion-are fun, colorful, sprightly and large enough to elicit a few squeals of delight from toddlers. These are really in-your-face images, and it is not clear from the credits if Chris Gilvan-Cartwright was responsible for them, but if so, he had a good time creating them. Short of a visit to the nearest zoo, this is a pleasant introduction for little ones to the typical safari animal. 2003, Abrams, Ages 2 to 6.
— Kathleen Karr
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Big, brightly hued pop-ups fully deliver on the title's promise, bringing viewers nose to nose with an elephant, a lion, a giraffe, a rhino, a hippo, and finally a chimpanzee whose head may be even larger than life sized. Hewitt's rhymes suggest just how close the contact is: "If a bristly chin scratches your cheeks,/If a huge yawn makes you see pink,/If your hair is ruffled/By nostrils that snuffle,/Then you are probably facing-/ a HIPPOPOTAMUS!" The pop-ups aren't exactly rugged, but they do fold in and out smoothly as spreads are opened and closed. Younger children especially will be startled, then delighted, by each in- your-face encounter.-John Peters, New York Public Library Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
