Introducing a lovable monster with a hairy problem

Stewart is a monster. He has wild, crazy, messy hair that's perfect for scaring, collecting spiders, and hiding after-school treats. But when Stewart's hair grows so long that things start getting lost in it, his parents decide it's time to intervene. Stewart disagrees. His hair is awesome! But when Stewart's hair keeps him from doing his very favorite thing, he realizes it might be time to reconsider.

With slyly funny text and uproarious illustrations, this humorous account of a much-feared experience is a must-have for every monster--and every child, too.

As a parent who spends hours in the children's section of the bookstore trying to find books that are entertaining AND make sense; this book is a gem! It's brilliantly colorful and full of humor that even my 7- and 8- year-olds enjoy. The illustrations are charming and original keeping my sons looking for new details every time we read it. As a parent of a high-functioning autistic child haircuts (and many other "normal" activities) can be frightening and challenging for our family. This book is making our routine trips to the stylist easier and much more enjoyable. We can't wait for more from Bethany Barton.

This is a great book, entertaining for both children and adults! It makes the act of reading a child's favorite story over and over a bit less monotonous. Barton's illustrations and clever storyline are a great combination and I consider this a must-have book for any child's library.
