{Synopsis} – Medusa refuses to care for her hair, her long locks getting knottier and dirtier with each passing page. Her hair rebellion elicits frozen expressions of shock from her family, but nothing will convince Medusa to brush. Only her hairdresser approaches Medusa with bravery and a blade, successfully solving the problem . . . with a short haircut! All are pleased with this drastic yet adorable solution. Leslie Patricelli’s depictions of this physical comedy bring a lively visual narrative to Joan Holub’s expertly focused text. Includes a summary of the original Medusa’s Wild Hair myth at the end.

{My thoughts} – Medusa is a toddler that doesn’t want to have her hair brushed. She has really long curly hair and she would rather brush her dolls hair then her own. Her parents are trying to get her ready for a visit with her grandma, but she isn’t having anything to do with it. Eventually her grandma shows up and takes her for a haircut.

On the back page is a small summarized more in depth version of the myth. It’s really nice to be able to read through it and see how the book and the actual myth go together so nicely.

This book is well written and the illustration go along so nicely with the story. I really like how the author and the writer worked together to make such a wonderful story for children to enjoy for years to come. This is must have book for any parent that loves Mythology and would like to be able to share their love of it with their children beginning at a young age.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
