Overview


Best-selling author Robert Munsch and illustrators Alan & Lea Daniel have created another adventure--starring Aaron whose hair takes on a mind of its own, much to the dismay of his neighbors.

Aaron grows his hair long to look like his father. But the hair is unruly, and one day while combing it, Aaron says "Hair, I hate you!" Suddenly the hair jumps off Aaron's head and runs away! With Aaron in frantic pursuit, it attaches itself to people and things all over the neighborhood, resulting in a huge traffic jam. Aaron is finally reunited with his hair--but not quite in the way he or his family planned!

When Aaron hurts his hair's feelings by saying he hates it, his hair runs away and jumps onto other people and into trouble.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The creators of Get Out of Bed! here offer a rather rootless tale about what happens when a boy, frustrated with his unruly tresses, yells, "Hair, I hate you!" The phrase becomes a refrain as Aaron's hair, its feelings hurt, jumps off his head and affixes itself to various people's body parts, beginning with the head of his baby sibling and including a woman's navel and a man's behind, and finally proceeds to a policeman who can't see to direct traffic when the hair flies onto his face. When each victim yells, "Hair, I hate you!" the hair heads on its way. Though this repetitive refrain and the story's broad humor may attract a few kids, most will find this feckless fare. The illustrators exploit the tale's outlandish visual potential to the level of slapstick sitcom, creating cartoon-style watercolors of Aaron's 1960s-holdover family as well as a Deadhead motorcyclist and a hippie on inline skates. Far from one of this storyteller's glossiest performances. Ages 3-6. (Sept.) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-Growing totally frustrated with his unruly mop of tangles, Aaron declares that he hates his hair. The insulted locks take off, with the bald boy in pursuit. The chase leads downtown where the runaway mane causes much disruption by attaching itself to various people and to a famous statue. Finally, hair and boy are reunited although whether the blond curls will stay on top of his head or imitate his father's beard is still in question. The watercolor illustrations help evoke the turmoil described, but the joke goes on way too long. The theme has been mined recently in Dawn Lesley Stewart's Harriet's Horrible Hair Day (Peachtree, 2000), Lindsay Lee Johnson's Hurricane Henrietta (Dial, 1998), and Carolivia Herron's Nappy Hair (Knopf, 1997). Perhaps die-hard Munsch fans will want to see this title, but most readers won't miss it.-Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.

Meet the Author


Born in Pittsburgh in 1945, Robert Munsch actually studied for the priesthood for seven years before attending Boston University and getting a degree in teaching. While training for the priesthood, Robert worked at an orphanage, where he realized that he loved working with kids, so he decided to work in daycare instead. That is where he realized his knack for storytelling—he would tell the kids stories before naptime. His boss convinced him to publish his stories, which allowed Robert to quit his job and become a full-time writer. Today, Robert and his family live in Canada.
