I'm looking for a short children's story (or maybe an excerpt of a story) about a kid who realizes his (her?) face is suddenly shapeable like plastic or wax. That's all I've got. I remember reading it when I was maybe 9 or 10, back in the very late 70's, early 80's.
I found it! Actually, someone on another site found it. But here it is: a story called "The Plastic Age" in an anthology called Adrift in Space and Other Stories published in 1974. An excerpt mentioned on Goodreads hints at his ability to mold his face:
When he awoke, Paul was unaware of the change that had come over him. He was a little groggier than usual, but otherwise, he felt fine. It was only as he began to dress that Paul noticed the change. His skin. Somehow, it was different. It felt smooth and pliable— like the plastic toys that lay scattered about the room.
Thanks to all who helped along the way!
