Review of "Big Bouffant" by Kate Hosford

"Ponytails and braids! Ponytails and braids! I don't see anything but ponytails and braids! This class needs some fashion. This class needs some fun. I'll find a hairdo to impress everyone." Annabelle doesn't want the same boring hairstyle that all the other girls have. When she spies a picture of her grandma, she has the perfect idea: a big bouffant! But how can she make her style stand up? And will her classmates really be impressed with her daring 'do?    description from Netgalley
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.
