'A bold and exciting picture book reuniting notoriously inventive duo Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean ... McKean's audacious illustrations bring the rhyming text vividly to life in this daring celebration of the imagination. Striking and theatrical' The Bookseller 'Sometimes scientifically accurate and sometimes surreal, over-arching all is the movement, rhythm and pace achieved through the combination of text and illustration. Provoking questions about what it is to be free in thought and form, this is a work of unique luminescence that may well change the way hair is looked at forever' The Bookseller
