Ella Kazoo Will Not Brush Her Hair
by Lee Fox, illustrated by Jennifer Plecas
Ages 4-8 40 pages Walker Books January 2010 Hardcover    

Ella Kazoo, like most little girls, doesnít like to have her hair brushed - only this little protagonist will do anything to escape the dreaded hairbrush. To the exasperation of her mother, Ella does indeed manage to avoid grooming at all costs while her hair grows wildly out of control. Eventually her unruly locks take on a life of their own, until even Ella can no longer stand them. Whatís a girl to do?

Ella Kazoo Will Not Brush Her Hair is the first picture book by author Lee Fox, whose lively verse makes Ellaís hair-raising adventure all the more fun and exciting. What child can resist the pleasure of an entertaining story told in rhyme? Jennifer Plecasís ink and watercolor illustrations capture the essence of the tale by visually documenting the change in Ellaís tresses page by uproarious page.

This story is a delight for little girls the world over and will even put a smile on the faces of their frustrated moms.
