"Even Monsters Need Haircuts" is a fun picture book targeted to second graders and younger. The story is about a boy whose father is a town barber. Imitating his father, the boy has his own barber shop...of a different sort. Once a month, accompanied by his customer Vlad (as in Vlad Dracula), the the barbershop serves only monsters.
His customers include classic monsters like Frankenstein (he gets a flat top), Wolfman (not an easy cut), and others like a skeleton (the boy has trouble figuring out what to do with this one). My 6-year-old's favorites were Cyclops and Medusa.
At the end of the night, the boy and his friends put everything away, including the rotting tonic, horn polish, and especially the shamp-ewww.
The art is colorful, bright and cheerful. The monsters are cartoonish and friendly, so there's no concern of any overt fright.
The book would be a perfect Halloween time purchase.
I received this book from the Goodreads First Reads program.

I read this book to my PK-3rd graders, and they all loved it. The illustrations are fantastic and there are so many little details that are fun to point out to the children.
