Publisher's Summary

By blending historical details with “amusing anecdotes that put flesh and blood on dry literary bones,” best-selling kids author Kathleen Krull “knows exactly how to captivate her audience” (Publishers Weekly). In this playful look at hair, Krull draws upon centuries of hairy history - including the fake beards of Egyptian queens, the hair-filled medicine of the Incas, and the diverse wigs of Queen Elizabeth I - to show just how hair-brained people can be.

    Story
    "Funny, gross, anecdotal look at hair and wigs"

    Funny, episodic anecdotes about hair and wigs through history. A great idea for a theme!

    I wonder if it seems more choppy without the book in front of the listener – I haven’t read the print version, but if it is available, it might be advisable to have it in front of your child while listening, especially if there are illustrations.

    The narration was fine but not outstanding, although it grew on me as the book progressed. My 12 year old son enjoyed it and thought it was over too soon. I thought the book could have gone into more depth about some of the historical background.
