Synopses & Reviews
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.
"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
"Appropriately crazy art design places masses of Photoshopped hair swirling wildly around Gaiman's rhymed defense of unshorn locks." Kirkus Reviews
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.
In my hair
And ground sloths sleep.
Prides of lions
Make their lair
Somewhere in my crazy hair.
