Update: I gave this five stars the first time I reviewed it because I was so disappointed with the size, but my three year old is fascinated by these tiny books... It's funny, he wants to read them every day, and the great thing is, he can take it everywhere because they fit anywhere...
I don't give it the five stars because, me, the parent, would have wanted these to be a little bit bigger...
What it occurs to me that these can be used as party favors, and children love them
Stephanie's mom is super. Always supporting her daughter, listening to her desires and accomplishing the different hairdos Stephanie wants to wear. The kids in Stephanie's class, including the teacher, continue to copy Stephanie's hairdo until one day, she teaches them a lesson.
Fun book to read to kids. Don't miss the half the fun. Stop and listen to the comments coming from the kids you are reading to. Don't miss out by giving the book to a child to read alone. Its so much more fun to read and listen to the comments. I learned so much about the kids in my daughters class and the teacher by reading Stephanie's Ponytail out loud.

I recommend this book to anyone who knows a strong willed little one or maybe a little one that needs to toughen up a bit and not follow so much Or for any kid really.
Lots of fun but if you don't like words like "ugly" or "brainless" being used this is not a choice for you.
Self-esteem builder, great for kids starting school and their first introduction to peer pressure. We just crack up with everything Munsch writes, this one is our favorite.
Illustrations are excellent and I highly recommend this book.
The reason I only gave 4 stars is because there is a page in the book that is not grammatically correct! Other than that the quality is great!
