Synopsis

Hugh Shampoo by Karen George

Hairier than Hairy Maclary, dirtier than Dirty Bertie, more shocking than Shock-headed Peter, Hugh Shampoo is a boy who will make you gasp, laugh, and wish for a hair-care regime to rival Justin Bieber's! Hugh Shampoo won't go near scissors, brushes, or shower attachments. He simply hates having his hair washed or combed or tampered with in any way. So he's not a particularly unusual little boy. What's more unusual is that his parents are both hairdressers. Poor Hugh! But then, when his parents decide to enter the 'scissor showdown' contest, things are about to change for Hugh ...and his messy head of hair. A story told with humour and energy and one that tackles the familiar tussle over hair-washing faced by parents and children everywhere.

Reviews

The bold, quirky, colourful illustrations will delight, the constantly changing layout will captivate and fascinate, whilst the unexpected twist at the end will amuse and entertain. Families with children who share Hugh's aversion may find this title quite useful when trying to coax and cajole! Martin Kromer, Carousel If you have a child who throws a tantrum on hairwash nights, this may solve the problem. Blackbird Pie
