Product description

A father and daughter discover the joys of his crazy hair in this brilliant picture book. Bonnie tries to tame her father's hair, but to no avail, as birds and beasts of every type jostle for space amongst the curls and tresses of this hirsute book. A warm and funny conversational text combine beautifully with Dave McKean's edgy and dramatic illustrations to make this another perfect picture book by Gaiman and McKean.

Review quote

'Electrifying and very funny ... a hymn to the unexpected ... more thrilling than threatening ... Parents will enjoy reading it aloud at bedtimes, bathtimes or before those dreaded preschool visits to the hairdresser at the end of the school holidays' Saturday Times 'Individual spreads are breathtaking; the whole book is astonishing: vibrant, funny, mysterious and inspiring' Books for Keeps 'A work of unique luminescence ... that pays testament to the power of the imagination' The Bookseller There are few picturebook-makers as cool as Dave McKean and Neil Gaiman, and their latest collaboration is wild ... distortions and magnifications make the images strange and dark, rivaling the text for energy and verve' Nicolette Jones, The Times
