Stephanie's Ponytail by Robert Munsch, Michael Martchenko

None of the kids in her class wear a ponytail, so Stephanie decides she must have one. The loud, unanimous comment from her classmates is: “Ugly, ugly, very ugly.” Steadfast, when all the girls have copied her ponytail, she resolves to try a new style. With true Munsch flair, each of Stephanie’s ponytails is more outrageous than the last, while the cast of copycats grows and grows.

This clever story about a girl who just wants a ponytail is a cute, and funny adventure for anyone who chooses to read it. Poor Stephanie is challenged by her copy-cat peers every day she attends school. No matter how ridiculous the style, her classmates think Stephanie's hair is amazing. This is a great story for all ages because it shows the importance of being yourself, even when being yourself is hard. I definitely recommend it to anyone, young or old, if you just want a laugh, or if your daughter or son could use a good picture book. Stephanie's Ponytail is the book for you!

My daughter has very long hair and everyone always wants to touch it. She really related to the little girl in this book who found a very unique and funny way to deal with people who want to copy her hairstyles.

This pairing of Munsch & Martchenko is another winner! A young girl states with confidence what she wants and what she likes and isn't cowed by society. A great lesson for young girls and boys, with a lot of humour! Highly recommend!

My 24 year old daughter still has this book from her childhood. We bought this new copy for a birthday gift for a 1 year old. My daughter loved this book and wanted to pass on its message and give the mom fun reading it, and the child will enjoy it when she is able to read herself.

This story is wonderful. My daughter who is 6 could really relate to Stephanie's Ponytail. It takes a real life situation and over elaborates on it to making it funny. It just reinforces that it is ok to be yourself even when your different from others.

This is a very cute book and my 5 year old loves it! It has a surprising twist at the end that children will just love.(You need to look closely at the pictures to get even more laughs!)

I love this book. It has a great message,funny illastrations and a fantastic title. Oh and by the way, tak note that every time Stephanies in school and changes hair styles theres a kid in the picture with a different kind of fruit. Now that, is genus.
