The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal 2010.
A father and child discover the joys of his crazy hair in this brilliant picture book. Bonnie tries to tame her father's hair, but to no avail, as birds and beasts of every type jostle for space amongst the curls and tresses of this hirsute book. A warm and funny conversational text combine beautifully with Dave McKean's edgy and dramatic illustrations to make this another perfect picture book by Gaiman and McKean.
CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal SHORTLIST 2010: Judges’ comments
A technically brilliant and highly imaginative book about daring to be different, which makes great use of colour and varying styles to surreal and often creepy effect. A fresh and incredibly clever picture book.
Crazy Hair by Neil Gaiman
'A bold and exciting picture book reuniting notoriously inventive duo Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean ... McKean's audacious illustrations bring the rhyming text vividly to life in this daring celebration of the imagination. Striking and theatrical'
'Sometimes scientifically accurate and sometimes surreal, over-arching all is the movement, rhythm and pace achieved through the combination of text and illustration. Provoking questions about what it is to be free in thought and form, this is a work of unique luminescence that may well change the way hair is looked at forever'
