Karen Henton introduces us to delightful characters in her picture book Meet the Snozzeralls, with illustrations by Sarah-Leigh Wills. The Snozzeralls are a family who lives in the face of a human and through their adventures we learn more about the anatomy of the human face. We meet Snozzadadda and Snozzamumma and their three children, Snozzerella Bella Boo, Snozzy McHooter Junior, and Snozzerelina Ballerina, as well as Uncle McHooter Tooter and Great-Great-Grandad McHooter who starts off this tale. In this book the Snozzeralls adventure through the nose, mouth, ears, and eyes to get to the bottom of a great mystery. Along the way, they learn interesting facts about these body parts and run into a few perils. Just like any good story, they make it home safely and can sleep soundly with their family.

Karen Henton has an incredible imagination to come up with the loveable characters in Meet the Snozzeralls. They are one-of-a-kind characters who bring humor to a traditionally boring topic – human anatomy. The illustrations by Sarah-Leigh Wills are beautiful and evocative and will hold any child’s attention. They complement the scenarios the Snozzeralls find themselves in perfectly. Karen knows the value of short, repetitive statements as well as some rhyming to keep children interested and captivated by the story. She also highlights certain sentences in uppercase and bold type, drawing the reader’s attention, or showing what to emphasize when reading aloud to children. It is a fun children’s book for ages up to 8. She builds a lovely story around the human body that is both educational and entertaining.

You’ve probably heard of the Borrowers, the little people who live between the walls and borrow (recycle) things to use in their domain. You’ve probably also heard of Leprechauns, the magical Irish little people, and Brownies, the Scottish little people. Well, sit back and meet the Snozzeralls – they’re the little green creatures that live in the human face. There are seven Snozzeralls in the family and the young ones get into all sorts of adventures, mostly within the face. When Great-Great-Grandad McHooter complains about the loud noise invading his face space, the young Snozzeralls set off on an adventure to find the source of the noise. They venture through the cilia hairs of the nose, the sinus cavities where they can bounce around and have so much fun and so much more. But they’re not allowed to go beyond the tonsils – it’s forbidden. Will they find the source of the noise and make their way safely back home inside the face? Find out in Meet the Snozzeralls by Karen Henton and Sarah Leigh Wills.

Karen Henton and Sarah Leigh Wills’s picture book, Meet the Snozzeralls, is a fun and educational story to introduce young readers to the organs in the human face and how the mouth, nose, and ears and interconnected. The language is simple, other than the biological terms for the parts of the face, and there are repeated phrases like “Much too much” and “Much too wet,” that will help young readers start to recognize certain words. With fun-filled illustrations, this is a great resource for teaching young readers the basics of human anatomy without getting too technical.
