Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

. . . She comes in the middle of the night, when everyone is sleeping. When she sees a smooth little head on a pillow, she can't resist giving it a cow kiss—sluuurrrp! Cowlick! gives young readers an imaginative and playful explanation for the "bedhead" that afflicts us all!

Review:

"Young bedhead sufferers, take heart! Ditchfield's picture-book debut imagines a playful explanation as to how children who go to bed with neat hair wake up with some wild 'dos in the morning. It's all because of a mysterious but kindly bovine nighttime visitor. Some readers may feel uneasy believing that they could be slurped by a cow while they sleep. But many adults — and kids — who've tried to tame the tufts of wild hair known by the titular term will likely find much to chuckle about here. Brief rhyming couplets set the scene as Beardshaw's (Grandma's Surprise) cheery, close-perspective acrylic paintings depict the action. She seems to take particular glee in fashioning the sturdily wavy 'once-flat hair now standing tall' on three brothers' heads. The cowlick on an additional (furry) member of the family — shown on the final spread — is not to be missed. Ages 2-5." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
