A bird's nest? A cow with two horns? No, it's Minu's hair and she does NOT like it. Her mother, her father, her grandmother try hard to tame it. But her grandfather is unconcerned… The illustrations of this charming story give Minu's hair a truly wild, tactile feel as it spills exuberantly through the pages

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

Encourages self-acceptance

Multimedia illustrations in which Minu’s hair is replicated by piles of feathery, textured material follow along as her grandfather teaches her to embrace, not bemoan, what makes her feel different. Foreword Reviews

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>
