Clara May wants to have the tallest hair in the world. One day her wish comes true, but she soon learns that having the tallest hair in the world comes with a whole host of problems.
I thought this book was adorable and simple. Neither heavy handed or preachy, it was simply a fun a story with a very simple message, "Be careful what you wish for". I love how Clara embraces her curl. (something I have never done mind you. Straightener all the way) There are so many fantastic laugh out loud parts and a rhythm that rolls off the tongue. The story is so fantastical in its silliness that I think both kids and adults will like this one, although I am sure parents will eventually tire of it after the thirtieth read.
