Description

A bright barnyard tale from the author of Duncan the Story Dragon about facing your fears (and a pair of shears), and learning that a hug from your mama can make just about anything seem possible.
 
Wally does not need a haircut. His hair is perfectly fine.
Sure, it trips him up a tad and gathers a bit of greenery.
But Wally does NOT want a haircut.
He doesn’t even want one after his mama and their barnyard friends show off their own fun new ’dos. But when his unruly hair holds him back from the hoedown, he might have to reconsider.


"Full of terrific vocabulary that is not watered down for the audience, and the brightly painted, full-page illustrations are appealing and comical. Full of alliteration, rhyme, and onomatopoeia, this humorous and cheerful picture book will be a fun read-aloud for the younger crowd."--School Library Journal
