A gorgeous little book about the benefits of brushing your hair Ė and listening to your mother!

Hollie has beautifully curly hair; its waviness has a tendency to get out of control and tie itself into knots, but Hollie is determined not to allow her mother to brush her hair. When a bird decides to nestle in amongst the glorious curls, Hollie is ecstatic and even more determined not to have her hair brushed for fear of frightening away the little bird. Hollieís wise mother knows things will end badly, but Hollie obstinately refuses to comb out her locks. It takes a very large peacock to finally persuade Hollie of the folly of having messy hair!

Dyer always manages to strike the optimum balance between cautionary and light-hearted and The Girl with the Birdís Nest Hair is no exception. Delightfully illustrated, its only minor drawback is the authorís obvious struggle with finding suitably rhyming words without losing focus on the story. Inevitably, this will charm little girls and give a great relief to their poor parents who often have to wage war over the tedious yet necessary daily ritual of brushing hair. Mums in particular will be immediately approving of the overall message that mum always knows best!
