by Babette Cole - £7.99 Red Fox (2001)
paperback ISBN 13: 9780099266266 | ISBN 10: 0099266261
Picture book for younger children. Girls and boys are always curious and sometimes even alarmed by the behaviour of their bodies as they grow up. Hair in Funny Places has Babette Cole's usual brilliant artwork and the text takes the form of a conversation between a small girl and her teddy bear, and is ingenious and funny. It is the behaviour of Mr and Mrs Hormone (wonderfully depicted) which is responsible for and plays havoc with the physical and emotional states of girls and boys throughout puberty.
"An icebreaker that will turn embarrassed giggles into proper laughter"
