Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-When the author underwent chemotherapy following cancer surgery, she faced the loss of her hair with courage and humor. Family and friends gathered for a "hair-cutting party," where her husband and two young sons (through whose voices the book is narrated) joined her in getting buzz cuts, resulting in "one big prickly-headed family!" Striking black-and-white photos record the party events as well as the chemotherapy appointments, Mom and the boys mugging in hats and wigs, and the woman's hair re-growth. With successful treatment concluded, the family hosted another party where everyone except the guest of honor wore a hat or wig. The warm support of a compassionate community of friends and loving family is apparent on every page as Watters and her sons encounter the changes and questions brought on by cancer. The gentle kindness conveyed in the often-humorous writing will reassure young children facing similar circumstances that it is indeed possible to cope well with a parent's cancer.-Joyce Adams Burner, Hillcrest Library, Prairie Village, KS Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
