Waterstones Says

Using the idea of a child's increasingly untamed hair as a metaphor for the drift and confusion of a family separation, Coelho and Lumbers' touching yet playful picture book is a multi-layered delight.

Nominated for the 2021 CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal

Once a month, Dad takes his son to the barbers, come rain or shine. But when Dad disappears, this little boy's hair grows big, ginormous, out of control - and so do his feelings.

A touching and melodic story of family separation from a child's perspective from the author/illustrator duo who brought us the Amnesty International recommended picture book Luna Loves Library Day.
