I Want to Grow Hair . reveals the startlingly deep questions-"would you be happier if I cried all the time?"-and silly pranks-apple juice in the specimen cup-that fill their lives with meaning and joy. These true-life stories are filled with the compassion and the infectious, transcendent humor only children can generate. Narrator Barbara Rosenblat's impish sense of humor and irreverent wit bring this audiobook to life with energy and affection.
