Description

Aaron's hair gives him problems: it always does exactly the opposite of what he wants it to do. One day, Aaron gets so mad he yells, "Hair! I hate you!" Proving that even bad hair can have hurt feelings, Aaron's hair jumps off his head and out the door. A hilarious chase follows, as Aaron's hair runs all over town. It leaves chaos in its wake, attaching itself to different parts of peoples' bodies, and even to a statue! It causes an enormous traffic jam, all with Aaron in hot pursuit. At the end of the bad hair day, Aaron realizes that he really does like his hair, and the runaway hair forgives him and comes home.

“...sure to be a hit.” — CM: Canadian Review of Materials

Praise for Robert Munsch and Michael Martchenko

“[Munsch is] a kindergarten superstar he ranks up there with Pablum and Pampers in name recognition arguably the most published Canadian author ever, in any genre.” — The Globe and Mail, Report on Business Magazine

"Munsch's parade of bright funny picture books has been a sales phenomenon in children's book publishing . . .
