The Hair of Zoe Fleefenbacher Goes To School by Laurie Halse Anderson, illustrated by Ard Hoyt
"Zoe Fleefenbacher has one blue eye and one green eye, and bright red hair that went on...FOREVER."
Forever being an understatement. Her bright red hair is massive, and has a mind of its own, it can open cookie jars, turn on the TV, play on the computer...even multi-task!
However, Zoe's hair is not quite so welcome in first grade. Mrs. Trisk, Zoe's teacher is all about rules and wild hair is not permitted...until her hair proves just how helpful it can be!
What I Thought:
This a wildly imaginative book that is just plain fun. Being a girl who can't seem to grow her brown fine/thin hair past her shoulders; a book about a wild, thick, red hair is just plain awesome.
This story is just simply delightful and the illustrations do Zoe's wild mane absolute justice. A delightful read.
