I Love My Hair meets If I Ran The Zoo in this fun, fantastical picture book from the illustrator of the Nikki and Deja and The Carver Chronicles series.
Natalie's hair is really wild—and she likes it that way! A host of friendly animals agree, and they move right in. At first it's just butterflies and birds that take up residence atop Natalie's head, but soon there are zebras, elephants, even a tiger! With all the roaring and squawking and snorting and burping, poor Natalie can hardly sleep. She needs to find someone to help coax those critters out . . . but who?
Inspired by the author's own childhood adventures with her hair, this playful fantasy will delight all girls and boys who resist having their tresses tamed.
"In her first outing as author, illustrator Freeman (Fancy Party Gowns) captures her heroine’s winning self-possession with concision and calm."—Publishers Weekly, review
"Freeman milks both humor and angst from the hairy situation, while not skimping on cute animals, either. An ideal storytime book that ought to snag the attention of listeners and readers."—Booklist, review
"The highly textured digital art uses bold colors to balance the increasingly large mass of Natalie’s black curly hair, keeping the tone of the illustrations playful and fun."—School Library Journal, review
