Annabelle is tired of the same old hairdo's. All of the girls have ponytails and braids, she wants to be different.
She sees a picture of her grandmother with a bouffant, and decides it is the hairdo for her. She experiments with a variety of ingredients to come up with the perfect do, but her efforts don't work out to well. She needs help.
At first the kids make fun, but she becomes a trendsetter.
I love this story of independence. I think it is great to teach children to think for themselves and not do what everyone else is doing.
The author use prose that is easy for children and flows well. I received a copy from Netgalley for review. This book will be released in April 2011. I gave it 4 stars.
