Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
When Minji's mother goes to get her hair done, Minji grabs her dog and aims to create her own version of the beauty salon. One side of the double page spreads shows her mother going through the routine of her choosing, having the hair color applied, waiting under the drier, and being combed out, with no text. The other side shows Minji putting her poor dog through a similar routine, with brief, appropriate comments, like "Choosing the right style can be difficult." Minji finds odd sources in the house for her colors, her rollers, and her drying hood. Her results with the unhappy pooch are hilarious. Fortunately, her mother is a good sport about the mess. What inventive Minji may do next is only suggested as she contemplates the dress shop. The first double-page offers a silent introduction, showing a city street with the dress shop and a glimpse of the dog running off the page. The next scene finds the dog entering and Minji peering into a beauty parlor; then, she is rushing off on the title page. Her mother's experiences are contained in rectangles, while Minji's amusing machinations are free to move even beyond the gutter. Each stylized scene gets a bit wilder and the paint splashier. Mother, now a stylish redhead, is open-mouthed contemplating the colorful mayhem, but Minji's charm is irresistible. Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2

After peering at her mother through a hairdresser's window, a Korean girl is inspired to open an imaginary salon of her own. While the woman is being primped and pampered at "Jang Hair," Minji's first customer is the unsuspecting family dog. She tries out different styles on her reluctant client, including a purple pom-pom headband, before deciding on a color treatment. She carefully prepares an ice-cream mixture and slathers it on the pooch, advising, "'You have to be patient; beauty takes time.'" Crayons improvise as hair rollers and watercolors add "a little more color." The minimal text relays Minji's professional patter: "We're almost done....Just the finishing touches....What do you think?" Eun-hee's clever side-by-side illustrations show the parallel beauty routines in both salons. When Minji's mother returns home, she responds to the paint-splattered mess with good humor. A stylish look at make-believe play.-Linda Ludke, London Public Library, Ontario, Canada

Kirkus Reviews
A little Korean girl decides to experiment as a hair stylist when she watches her mother enter the hair salon. As Mom selects a new hair style and color, Minji swathes her pet dog in a towel and pretends the dog is a customer in Minji's imaginary salon. First Minji tries out different styles on the apprehensive canine. Mimicking a hair colorist, she carefully mixes ice cream from the freezer, which she liberally applies to the dog's head and ears. Next Minji adds more color with paints and uses crayons and pencils like rollers for the dog's fur. While seated under a make-shift hair dryer, the dog chomps on a book. After Minji's finishing touches, the pampered pooch emerges with fluffy multicolored ears just in time for Mom to return with her own freshly coiffed hair and discover the chaos of the homemade salon. Choung's original illustrations and minimalist text cleverly pair scenes of Mom's progress in the adult salon with parallel developments in Minji's for some amusing comparisons. Creative and fresh.
