Mary's Hair Synopsis

One child. One pair of scissors. A lot of disastrous haircuts!  Mary loathes her big, curly, bushy hair and so she chops it all off - and she looks fantastic! Well, at least she thinks so. But her mammy is not convinced and forbids her from ever cutting her own hair again. But she didn't say anything about anyone else.

Mrs Doyle meets Horrid Henry in this fantastic comedy from Eoin Colfer. A brilliant laugh-out-loud Little Gem about a not-so-brilliant hairdresser and one very unfortunate dog!
