Clara's Crazy Curls, by Helen Poole
She's like a cross between a Robert Munsch character and one from Dr. Seuss (remember Gertrude McFuzz?). How she managed to get her hair to stay upright as it grew past the ceiling I'll never know.
Magda and I enjoyed this book, though I think Magda found the premise of wanting MORE hair a bit perplexing. She had been growing her own hair out so she could donate it to Locks of Love when she eventually had it cut. After months of dealing with tangles, braids, extra brushing and endless blow drying, the day she got it all chopped off was the happiest of her young life!
For more information about the book, visit Capstone Young Readers. And if you happen to be interested in donating hair to Locks of Love, a wonderful organization that makes wigs for sick children, you can visit locksoflove.org.
