Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In my hair
Gorillas leap,
Tigers stalk,
And ground sloths sleep.
Prides of lions
Make their lair
Somewhere in my crazy hair.

Review:

"The duo responsible for The Wolves in the Walls (2003) return with another chaotic picture book popping with bright collage and multimedia imagery....[D]elightful and glib." Booklist

Review:

"Appropriately crazy art design places masses of Photoshopped hair swirling wildly around Gaiman's rhymed defense of unshorn locks." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

Gaiman, author of the Newbery Medal-winning The Graveyard Book, and illustrator McKean team up once again for this whimsical, witty rhyming tale of a young girl who tries to tame the unruly mane of her friend. Full color.

Synopsis:

Crazy Hair is a fantastically fun tale written by New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman and illustrated by the astoundingly talented Dave McKean, the award-winning team behind The Wolves in the Walls.

In Crazy Hair, Bonnie makes a friend who has hair so wild there's even a jungle inside of it! Bonnie ventures through the crazy hair, but she may need more than a comb to tame her friend's insane mane.

Beautifully written poetry. The artwork is captivating and draws the reader farther into the story as the young protagonist discovers all the delightful things captured in the storyteller's crazy hair. Imaginative and delightful. Anyone who has seen a photograph of Mr Gaiman has probably had a fleeting moment where their minds have wondered just what could be going on with his free-spirited hair and, thanks to this lovely story, we now know. :)

Very cute and funny! The art reminds me of some abstract-ish paintings that I love, and the story is highly entertaining--even for adults!
