Claire has long, beautiful hair. She also has a mind of her own. And one day she decides she will not wash her hair. At first, her hair is not so bad. But as the weeks go by, tangles grow to brambles. Luckily, even a very stubborn girl can change her mind. When Claire announces, ‘I’ll wash my hair!’; that’s when the fun begins. You won’t believe what crawls, walks, falls, and flies out of Claire’s hair. Children of all ages will enjoy this vividly illustrated rhyming tale of a girl who learns her lesson…or does she?
