Ella Kazoo simpley refuses to brush her hair, and soon it develops a mind of its own!
Ella hides when her mother wields a hairbrush, then hides the brush in a drawer and buries it in the garden while her hair keeps growing bigger and bigger - so wild it has a bird's nest on top!
Debut author Lee Fox has formed a delightful tale, told in rollicking verse, about a girl who's got just what it takes to change a really bad hair day into a happy situation for all. Illustrator Cathy Wilcox's bright and fun illustrations bring Ella and her crazy hair to life.
