This book is kind of silly, but it's intended to be a story of becoming of building self-assuredness by learning to accept who you are as a person. I'm not sure that the story ever really had that aggrandizing moment that everything finally came clear, but it was still fun to read. ( )

I enjoyed the illustrations, on each page, the backdrop provides a different face for Nose, a visual trick that kids will enjoy. The story itself was a little sappy. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0763616745, Hardcover)

A brilliantly original picture book about seeking acceptance offers a cleverly hidden image on every page.

Meet the Nose, a simple fellow who just wants to belong. It’s easy enough for the Nose to stick out, but will he ever be able to fit in? The Nose’s search for a place where he can be happy sends him wandering high and low, far and wide, until he makes a remarkable and reassuring discovery.

First-time author Viviane Schwarz and first-time illustrator Joel Stewart have created a world both unusual and familiar - a world where there’s a special place for everyone, right under our noses.
