The Mayor’s wife Jane appears with clothing she’s made of hair plus matching accessories. Her ingenious creative line called ‘Hair Wear’ soon makes her a mint. Inspired by this, the town realizes there are countless innovative uses for their abundance of hair.
The poor town of Perkin is transformed into a thriving metropolis due to their useful hair production and the Mayor’s gala Hair Ball is planned to showcase their inventiveness to the world with extraordinary results.
Highly entertaining with a strong message on how imagination can work miracles, this funny and clever story in rhyming verse is visually depicted in illustrations of a unique style by award-winning illustrator, Nathaniel Eckstron.
Spider Lee believes that learning should be fun, and this belief is perfectly presented through this excellent production, complemented beautifully by the artwork.
