The Eye of the Beholder by Daniel Hayes is about two best friends, Tyler and Lymie. Tyler and Lymie do everything together - including getting in trouble. Badoglio, a famous local artist, was known for making heads out of rock, and there is a rumor around town that Badoglio threw two sculpted rock heads into the river behind his house. Tyler and Lymie try their hand at rock heads. After making two rock heads, Tyler and Lymie plant the rock heads behind Badoglio’s house. The town precedes to find the heads and determines the heads are authentic. Now the boys are in a load of trouble. The cover design of this book includes an intriguing boy who looks rough. The cover makes the reader wonder why the boy is making this facial expression. I think many high school students would enjoy reading this book. It is fun and entertaining, and we’ve all gotten ourselves into trouble at some point. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0449002357, Mass Market Paperback)

Tyler and Lymie are sick in bed and bored out of their minds. But while their hometown plans a festival for a famous local artist, and folks scramble to find his last known works of art, the boys hatch a clever plot.

Tyler and Limy create their own sculptures as a joke and discard them near the artist's studio. But when the sculptures are found and determined to be authentic, the art world is suddenly abuzz with news of the amazing discovery--and two boys with great imaginations are in a hilarious heap of trouble. . . .
