Overview

One day an unruly curl pops out of Harriet's nice neat braid--a wriggly, wavy, horrible curl. "It looks weird," taunts her brother.

When Harriet's sister offers to fix the rebellious curl, the three of them launch into a series of outrageous, hair-raising schemes to tame Harriet's wayward ringlet. Despite their best efforts, though, two...three...four...and still more curls break loose. Soon the yard and the house are a wreck, poor Harriet is exhausted, and her head is covered in curls.

Dawn Stewart's rollicking, boisterous tale, vividly brought to life by Michael White's brilliant and quirky illustrations, will entertain young readers while helping them to see that the root of our problems is sometimes all in the way we look at them.

What People Are Saying

Ann Haley
Red-haired Harriet battles her unruly locks in this amusing tale of a little girl’s bad-hair day that’s also a counting lesson for older preschoolers....Kids and parents can relate to Harriet’s “helpful” siblings, whose unorthodox hair cures just make things worse. The illustrations are delightful: bright and colorful, with an almost cartoon-like quality....It’s an amusing tale for big and little siblings to share.
LifestylesGazette.com
The Bulletin of The Center for Children’s Books-February 2000 “....the elaborate, messy, and absurd attempts at repair are entertaining, as is the dialogue of the sibs (who are clearly enjoying their experimentation) as they put Harriet through their tender ministrations....The anthropomorphized dog and cat cavort divertingly through the proceedings; though the siblings appear not to notice them, kids in the audience will get a kick out of their antics. If you’re looking to take the knots out of a bad hair day, try this.
Orange The County Register
There is a fun counting book masked by this humorous tale-and a good lesson about being comfortable with who you are and how you look. Dawn Lesley Stewart’s first children’s book is wonderfully accompanied by Michael White’s whimsical illustrations. Kids will love it because there’s lots going on in each picture besides the obvious story line. Give them time to absorb it all.

    Children Love this Book!!

    I bought this book for my grandchildren. They love it! Dawn Lesley Stewart's story about Harriet who has wild curls and her brother and sister's attempts to straighten them is hilarious. The illustrations are wonderful, colorful and the kids love the dog and cat who do everything from fishing for bones in mud puddles to hiding in cat-shaped lumps under Harriet's bedcovers. This is a book they want to read again and again. If you read this Ms. Stewart ... thank you for such an entertaining book.

    The Cure is Worse Than the Curl

    Harriet's Horrible Hair Day is not only for the young girl who can't get her hair to behave, it's for the young boy who can't tame his stubborn cowlick. When a curl pops out of Harriet's cinnamon colored braid, her brother tells her she looks weird. His statement set into action a string of remedies that Harriet's brother and sister apply reminiscient of the antics of Dr. Seuss's 'Cat in the Hat'. They are determined to straighten their sister's curl. 'Harriet's sister plopped a colander on Harriet's head, and her brother pulled the curls through the hole.' Though the cure is worst than the curl, Ms. Stewart takes the reader on a hairy adventure littered with a background of cats and dogs. Her amusing text is phonetically pleasing to any child's ear. Brilliantly illustrated by Michael P. White, the combination of these two artists makes this book above-average. This is a book a child with clutch to his or her chest and read again, and again. No wonder our local bookstore sold out.
