My Feelings:

Young Annabelle is distraught. There are so many boring, uniform hairstyles on the first day of school! With inspiration from her grandma and some help from her mom, Annabelle finds the perfect hairdo to help her stand out: a big bouffant. As the week unfolds, her gigantic hair brings giggles, admiration, and eventually... a whole classroom of copycats. This will not do. Annabelle must find a new way to be original. What will she concoct this time?

My Review:

I love this picture book. I want all my nieces to read this. Annabelle is a fun little girl who wants to be different from all the other girls from her class. She’s almost as a little Carrie Bradshaw (SATC) who loves fashion and standing out. The steps Annabelle takes to come up with something new is such fun.

The story is filled with colourful pictures that truly stand out almost as Annabelle herself. Just take a look at that wonderful cover and you immediately get the feeling of how the book is inside.

Being yourself and be original is the best advice for children nowadays. So when the book comes out in April I am going to buy a copy of it. I’m looking forward to more picture books by Kate Hosford.

Sounds like somethingk I would have liked to read as a kid. Also I love the cover and that she has so many different things stuck in her hair do.
