Review

“Marvelously and energetically illustrated…Humorous chalk paste illustrations bring hair out of control to exuberant life, practically popping off the page in cartoony splendor.”
Children’s Bookwatch
 
“Entertaining illustrations in chalk pastels make the most of Wanda’s luxuriant hair.”
The Horn Book Guide

Format: Hardcover
Marvelously and energetically illustrated in full color by Georgia Graham, Wanda And The Wild Hair is the debut picturebook story of Barbara Azore for the enjoyment of preschool children ages 3 to 6. Wanda And The Wild Hair is about a young girl who loves the wild look of her hair dearly, even though her mother nags her to wash it and her teacher threatens to have the principal cut it off. A series of accidents and messes leave Wanda's hair in worse shape than usual, with twigs and branches in it - it's almost a bush! She has to get it cut and styled, but whispers to herself, "don't worry, it will grow again". Humorous chalk pastle illustrations bring hair out of control to exuberant life, practically popping off the page in cartoony splendor.

Wish this worked out for our little big haired girl... since when would a teacher criticize a student's hair? A father who says negative things about a child's hair? He should be showing her how her big hair is beautiful... So sad...
