Acclaimed author Laurie Halse Anderson and vibrant illustrator Ard Hoyt style a hair-raising story that is sure to be a ‘do! Zoe Fleefenbacher has one blue eye and one green eye and bright red hair that goes on…forever. Her hair has always been unruly, but now she is in first grade and according to her teacher, Ms. Trisk, “first grade has rules.” It takes countless barrettes and scrunchies to finally hold Zoe’s hair. But when it can help with an uncooperative science lesson, will Ms. Trisk let Zoe’s hair free?
This book made me feel the wild and free feeling that Zoe's hair portrayed. It is a great way to explain to kids that being wild and free can be good in a helpful way.
