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
