A surprise ending will keep kids giggling-and from taking haircuts into their own hands!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
When a boy insists on wearing a brown paper bag over his head all day, the grownups around him go a bit crazy. "The hero's successful acts of insubordination attest to Krosoczka's sympathy for his audience, who will readily identify," wrote PW. Ages 4-7. (July) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-From a brown, flecked dust jacket with two cut-out circles, a pair of eyes stares out at readers. At first, it is not clear why Josh chooses to go through the day-eating breakfast, giving his book report, and playing soccer-with a paper bag over his head. The adults think he won't be able to function, but the child even manages to score three goals. In the end, Josh reveals his motivation-a do-it-yourself haircut. His little sister proposes an alternate solution: "a very cool, spiky, mega-hold gel idea." Quirky caricatures rendered in thick, layered brush strokes are accompanied by short sentences in a childlike font. Curiosity will be piqued by the cover, although the story doesn't sustain interest over multiple readings. A novelty purchase, with programming potential.-Wendy Lukehart, Washington DC Public Library Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
