BOY OF A THOUSAND FACES
York : Laura Geringer Books, 2000.
year old Alonzo King was born on Halloween. Is it any wonder that
he is obsessed with monsters? He loves watching old monster movies
on TV. His favorite show is
Monsters at Midnight. His
mother doesn't want him to watch it because he sometimes has nightmares.
But Alonzo watches anyway. He has seen about all of the old monster
movies. His favorite actor is Lon Chaney -- the man of a thousand
faces. Now Alonzo strives to become the Boy of a Thousand Faces.
He tries different makeup and takes pictures of himself that he pastes
into a secret notebook. So far he only has 23 faces. He writes
to the host of his favorite show hoping he can get some ideas for more
faces. Then, without warning, in a town that doesn't believe in monsters,
THE BEAST arrives. One of the scariest monsters ever. Can Alonzo
discover the secret of The Beast?
