What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Just before midnight, on the night of a full moon, a young barber stays out past his bedtime to go to work. Although his customers are mostly regulars, they are anything but normal—after all, even monsters need haircuts. Business is steady all night, and this barber is prepared for anything with his scissors, rotting tonic, horn polish, and stink wax. It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to help these creatures maintain their ghoulish good looks. Perfect for Halloween, this is a hilarious story about a boy who follows in his father’s footsteps . . . in his own monstrously unique way.

I love this book! It’s great for Halloween, of course, but this book is one that’s still fun to read all year long, especially if your little one is getting ready for a haircut. It’s funny and the story is great! The only thing I’d mention is spoiler that there is one monster who looks like a normal person but takes his head off, so I’d just be wary of that if your child might be sensitive to that or monsters, in general.

Reading contracts all day long. Not bad, but not quite as fun as reading about hobbits.
