The Lovereading4Kids comment

Kiki is an artistic, little girl who’d prefer to do anything other than brush her hair every day. There are simply so many other better things to do!

So it comes as no surprise when Kiki’s hair develops a tiny, tangled knot. But rather than wish it gone, Kiki nurtures that knot until it becomes something grand, something worthy of an incredible story.

Each of the author's launch titles - Pancake Pandemonium, My Monster Mayhem, Mum's Cronky Car and Oh, What A Tangle - have been brilliantly illustrated by a different artist and the result in each one is a riot of colour and comic flair as the kids take on Mums, Dads, and a few messy monsters, and pancakes, clothes and even cars come flying off the page. There's even some scary stuff in My Monster Mayhem.

Synopsis

Oh, What a Tangle! by Anita Pouroulis

A young girl can’t be bothered to brush her hair. Unbrushed and unloved it soon becomes one big barnet that is full of surprises, and that’s not all!

Reviews

'All four books [Pancake Pandemonium, My Monster Mayhem, Mum's Cronky Car and Oh, What A Tangle] are all written by Anita Pouroulis] are a visual and storytime treat... they are absolutely wonderful and in parts I laughed out loud.' Sunday Times

‘Wonderful, bright and very funny… a treat for the eye and the ear’. David Harmer, poet and performer

About the Author

Anita Pouroulis

Anita Pouroulis was born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1969. She grew up there, the eldest of three siblings.

Anita worked as a primary school teacher for many years, both in South Africa and in the U.K. While teaching, she developed a passion for children’s books and read every single book in each and every school library! She also studied part time, completing an Honours Degree in Psychology. She then moved out of teaching for a while, landing what she calls her ‘best job ever’, writing and copy-editing for a teenage girls’ magazine based in Johannesburg.

“My daughter is an incredible source of inspiration for my stories,” she says, “As well as the memories of all my ‘other’ children I taught so many years ago!”
