By day a little boy watches his father at work in the family barber shop, but once a month at midnight the customers are monstrously different.
Here is a non-scary monster book which will still have plenty of appeal. There is lots of humour in the pictures and children will enjoy spotting the different monsters in the story. Each of the monsters has individual style and character and, like humans, some will try out new hairstyles, whilst others have the same thing every time. The ‘scary human’ who enters the shop turns out to be playing a joke, so nothing at all to worry about in this quirkily original story.
