Children's Literature - Gisela Jernigan
This original fairytale by the classic children's author, E. Nesbit, has been reprinted and enhanced by colorful, Victorian-style paintings that reflect both the romance and the humor of the story. With allusions and references to Alice in Wonderland, Gulliver's Travels, Sleeping Beauty and Rapunzel, this amusing tale chronicles what happens after the Bad Fairy, Malevola, curses Princess Melisande's hair, resulting in a variety of "bad hair days," ranging from baldness to extreme overgrowth that fills up her bedroom. It's longer than average length, references to other works and inter-woven mathematical concepts, help make this book more appropriate for readers older than the usual picture book audience.
