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.
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!
