Summary

Summary

The 2011 Parent's Choice Award Gold Medal Winner for Nonfiction

By blending historical details with "amusing anecdotes that put flesh and blood on dry literary bones," best-selling kids author Kathleen Krull "knows exactly how to captivate her audience" (Publishers Weekly). In this playful look at hair, Krull draws upon centuries of hairy history-including the fake beards of Egyptian queens, the hair-filled medicine of the Incas, and the diverse wigs of Queen Elizabeth I-to show just how hair-brained people can be.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“From early humans to the British punks of the 1970s and many stops in between, Krull teases readers with intriguing, humorous facts about hair and grooming…Notes at the end extend the facts and provide yet more tantalizing strands of information.” School Library Journal
