Chapter One"Why does my hair curl that way?" Annie asked into the mirror one day. "It twist and twirls and will not stay straight, why?" She asked, "was it something I ate?"
"My friend Ramonita has beautiful hair! It's straight and it's long, It's not fair! It's not fair! I too want straight hair!"
The next day at school Annie met with her friend, she spoke of her hair of which she would lend.
"You want to wear my long hair that is down to the floor?" asked Ramonita. "Every day it grows more and more. Your short curls they bounce with delight, my hair is very long and to comb it takes all night."
"I don't see the problem," Annie said. "You have beautiful hair! If it were mine I'd swing it up in the air. I'd run fast through the park and everyone would see, that long hair belongs to me."
Annie gave her curls in for Ramonita's long hair. Just as Annie said she would, she ran with it everywhere.
She ran past Dan the mailman sweeping him up in the air, swept past Ms. Lolita, as she sat in her rocking chair.
Annie skipped into the park and swung her hair into the trees. The long hair brushed up against branches, shrubs, a bird's nest, and a honeycomb full of bees.
