Synopses & Reviews
Best-selling author Robert Munsch and illustrators Alan and Lea Daniel have created another adventure--starring Aaron whose hair takes on a mind of its own, much to the dismay of his neighbors.
Aaron grows his hair long to look like his father. But the hair is unruly, and one day while combing it, Aaron says "Hair, I hate you!" Suddenly the hair jumps off Aaron's head and runs away! With Aaron in frantic pursuit, it attaches itself to people and things all over the neighborhood, resulting in a huge traffic jam. Aaron is finally reunited with his hair--but not quite in the way he or his family planned!
The wacky, whimsical stories of Robert Munsch are reissued in this paperback edition featuring eye-catching new covers. Full-color illustrations.
About the Author
Born in Pittsburgh in 1945, Robert Munsch actually studied for the priesthood for seven years before attending Boston University and getting a degree in teaching. While training for the priesthood, Robert worked at an orphanage, where he realized that he loved working with kids, so he decided to work in daycare instead. That is where he realized his knack for storytelling—he would tell the kids stories before naptime. His boss convinced him to publish his stories, which allowed Robert to quit his job and become a full-time writer. Today, Robert and his family live in Canada.
