The struggle with hair is REAL!
a heartfelt story about accepting one’s hair the way it is and loving it anyway. It’s such a simple book but Gayatri Basu has done what I could never do - make unmanageable hair look good. @thereadingmomster/a>
Funny and wise
The generous number of pages and Gayathri Bashi’s clever use of silken threads animates the simple, almost crude, illustrations and allows the hair unfettered freedom taking on a life of its own... Gayathri Bashi’s tale is both funny and wise and will strike a chord with every little girl who has been subjected to the morning taming ritual. Goodbooks.in
A joyous tribute to the wonder of hair
This sweet story is both funny and relatable; any young reader with an expansive head of hair will understand the struggles and find reassurance that their hair is amazing as it is. Uncomplicated illustrations amusingly capture Minu’s emotional journey while reveling in her amazing hair that seemingly fills every page with its glorious size and texture. A joyous tribute to the wonder of hair and satisfaction in self-love. — Booklist review
