The Girl with the Bird's-nest Hair by Sarah Dyer

No one really likes brushing their hair, but the girl in this delightfully anarchic tale finds out the hard way just what it means to ignore your mother's pleading to 'brush your hair'! First there is one little bird making the hair hard to brush, then another and another, and soon the girl and her mother find their day becomes an avian nightmare.


'A delightful picture book. It'll strike a perfect chord with parents and children everywhere' 'Sarah Dyer's unique and quirky illustrations suit the story perfectly. The humans are bristling with life and emotion, whilst all the different birds are a joy to pore over ... A fantastic book for any child on the cusp of reading
