“Deliciously funny, this story is packed with silly moments given its absurd premise. The Dad’s personality and how he doesn’t give up on his hair despite all the challenges he encounters, adds extra humour to the story. This is definitely the book your early readers will want to read, because laughing about something is always the best way to capture children’s attention.”

“The story is told in short sentences but this is perfect because even a short sentence tells a lot of story. The book is helped on by marvellous wacky illustrations that help tell the story brilliantly.When Dad’s Hair Took Off is a comical chapter book for early readers or for any child to enjoy reading aloud with a grownup who relates! A fun book to celebrate and share with Dad on Father’s Day or any day.”

“This book uses some amazing play on words like ‘wish you were hair’, ‘the net brushed by, a hairs breadth away’. You could create your own puns and play on words using things around you. Some work could be done around homophones, what they are and examples of them.”

“This is a wonderfully fast paced, hair-lairious story for early readers! The text is packed with playful puns and jokes whilst each of the colour illustrations is joyous, offering plenty to discuss and enjoy. Children will love trying to locate Dad’s hair in each picture, working out which marks on the page might- or might not – be the missing tresses. Perfect for children with a whacky sense of humour- and their adults, of course!”

“Quirky, funny and “Hairsta la vista baby” is now one of my favourite lines from a kids’ book. Brilliant.”
