“Okay, I think my hair would get dirty if birds nested in it. Oh my gosh, there are lions in there? This is getting hilarious! And now she is getting crazy hair! I like it when they say, ‘Stuck inside my crazy hair!’ Mom, read it again!”

Parent’s Note:
Expect a whole lot of zany wackiness from the author/illustrator pair who also wrote “Coraline.” Grayce was riveted by the story and kept saying, “Oh, my gosh, this is hilarious!” “Crazy Hair” is, indeed, hilarious; but more than that, it is imaginative and fun and just slightly creepy (in a good way). As a parent, I love reading this book because the character is one of a kind. It’s the best of what a children’s book should be – full of adventure and exploration and creativity, with just a little bit of “hair-raising” wonder to go along with it. This book is her hand’s-down favorite right now and I would buy it in hard cover. “Crazy Hair” by Neil Gaiman will be a permanent book in our collection.
