16th March Crazy Hair Day

Whether you celebrate Crazy Hair Day or not, it is always fun to look at these five books that 'celebrate' hair.
* Crazy Hair by Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean
* Crazy Hair Day by Barney Saltzberg
* Ella Kazoo Will Not Brush her Hair by Lee Fox and Cathy Wilcox. This Australian book about feisty redhead Ella Kazoo is also written in verse. The American version has different illustrations. Why do they do this?
* The Girl With the Bird's-Nest Hair by Sarah Dyer also features a redhead who has ides of her own for her hair and
* Murgatroyd's Garden by Judy Davos and Drahos Zak, also Australian, tells the story of a boy who refuses to wash his hair and ends up with things growing in it , similiar to the beard in Margaret Wild's Creatures in the Beard.
