Do Not Go to Bed with Wringing Wet Hair!

Description
A bad hairday like no other!
In the middle of winter, in a tucked-away town,
Where the snow never seemed to stop coming down,
In a mountain-sized house, the color of sky,
Lived a girl with thick hair that took too long to dry.
So begins this delightfully irreverent tale, written in the tradition of Dr. Seuss. When a spirited little girl named Ruthie Bon Bair refuses to dry her wet hair before bedtime, she is plagued by an unusual host of difficulties -- plants and flowers and other outrageous items begin to sprout from her scalp! As her condition escalates, Ruthie and friends attempt to control the growing vegetation in her hair, but not without some surprising, and hilarious, results. . . .
