Synopsis

Need a Trim, Jim by Kaye Umansky

Shirley's is curly, Mike's has spikes, Dave's has waves - they all have haircuts to suit their face. But no-one can remember what Jim's face is like, it is hidden behind an enormous fringe. He's not too keen to have his hair cut, but when he is finally in the barber's chair, it is a simple snip, Jim is trimmed! First published in 1999 for 3-7's.

Reviews

'Look at Jim! He needs a trim. His hair's so long, he cannot see. He falls down stairs, bumps into chairs and has such trouble with his tea.'

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
