I Don't Want Curly Hair!

Written by Laura Ellen Anderson

Illustrated by Laura Ellen Anderson

I Don't Want Curly Hair! Synopsis

NO! I do not want this BIG CURLY HAIR! It's messy and silly and just plain unfair. All Curly Haired Girl has ever wanted is straight and luscious locks, but when she meets a little girl with the smoothest, silkiest hair, who says all she's ever wanted is spirally, squiggly hair, they are BOTH confused! A hilarious tale about loving what we have. And hair, lots and lots of hair. I Don't Want Curly Hair! is a glorious picture book for little people who always want what they can't have! From the brilliant Laura Ellen Anderson - illustrator of the bestselling Witch Wars series.
