Joan and Richard Hewett seem not to understand sadness or irony in their photo essay ''On Camera,'' the story of the life and times of Philip Waller, child actor. Of course, the Hewetts, authors of ''Motorcycle on Patrol: The Story of a Highway Officer,'' don't have Miss Gish's perspective: her 105th movie, ''The Whales of August,'' opened on Oct. 14, which was probably her 91st birthday (there is some question about her exact age because she never had a birth certificate).

Richard of jamestown. The purpose of this series of stories is to show the children, and eventhose who have already taken up the study of history, the home lifeof the colonists with whom they meet in their books. To this end everyeffort has been made to avoid anything savoring of romance, and to dealonly with facts, so far as that is possible, while describing the dailylife of those people who conquered the wilderness whether for consciencesake or for gain.

Eayaroler
This book paints a picture of the time, effort, and committment required to be a professional child actor. It gives a "day in the life" immediacy to the child actor's work.

It is neither a biography of Philip Waller, the subject of the book, nor is it the glitter you'd see on "Entertainment Tonight" or other gossip type venues. It avoids dealing with how much money actors make or the celebrity aspects of the actor's life.

This book should be required reading for any child-or parent of a child-who expresses interest in becoming a professional actor.

On Camera gives kids a good overview of what it is like to be a child actor. It is written simply enough so that young kids can read it on their own and know that another kid somewhere is experiencing the same things they are. A great little gift for the child actor in your life.
