This book made me laugh out loud, finding I was immediately turning back to the beginning to read it all over again, this time to take in every added nuance in the illustrations, which brim with humour and visual storytelling. These start in the dedications…For Dad, my HAIR-O. At birth, Amy has little hair, whereas Dad, proudly, has lots. As Amy grows, so does her hair, lusciously, whilst Dad’s rapidly disappears. Together they search for Dad’s lost hair, and research the problem…. [We see discarded copies of The Case of the Disappearing Fringe; Easy Steps to find your Follicles; Vanished into Thin Hair; Heats, Crimps and Leaves…] Meanwhile, Amy’s hair grows and grows to incredible lengths, taking a lot of looking after and causing all sorts of problems, especially on windy or wet days. Imagine the illustrations, her hair pegged out on the line to dry! Soon her hair is so long she can’t even stand on the floor anymore and has to be carried around. Despite all the problems, Amy loves her hair, and looks to her Dad to find some sort of solution. So he studies bizarre hairdos, and practises his ideas on topiary until he feels ready to reveal …..THE DADDY HAIRDO! From Amy’s long locks he creates The Ice Cream Cone, the Rings of Saturn, and his personal favourite, the Triple Beehive. How to end such a tale? Enough is enough, for problems also follow all these fantastic hairdos. Find this hilhairious book to share with your children, your beloved aunt, your bald uncle and especially your favourite hairdresser. So much more than a tall tale…. The illustrations will make you laugh aloud too!
