The victim is the beautiful, innocent Belinda, her attacker is the dastardly Baron, and his weapon of choice is a pair of scissors. A hilarious mock epic, this is the sharp and witty tale of the most famous bad hair day in the history of literature, complete with Aubrey Beardsley’s beautiful illustrations.
