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.

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.
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.
