Medusa refuses to care for her hair, her long locks getting knottier and dirtier with each passing page.
Her hair rebellion elicits frozen expressions of shock from her family, but nothing will convince Medusa to brush. Only her hairdresser approaches Medusa with bravery and a blade, successfully solving the problem . . . with a short haircut!
All are pleased with this drastic yet adorable solution. Leslie Patricelli’s depictions of this physical comedy bring a lively visual narrative to Joan Holub’s expertly focused text.
Includes a summary of the original Medusa’s Wild Hair myth at the end.
Hercules is not as interested in “playing nice” as he is in playing strong!
But when one feat of strength destroys his little sister’s 12-piece tower, he must use his powers for good to restore the tower and seek her forgiveness. She forgives him indeed, and then shows her own strength by gleefully knocking down the stacked blocks herself!
Joan Holub’s expertly focused text pairs perfectly with Leslie Patricelli’s famously humorous illustrations.
