Crazy Hair by Neil Gaimen and Illustrated by Dave McKean

Buy it Now!

Neil Gaiman is an other I love because of his inventive mind and the colorful pictures that he paints with his words! When you combine that with a great illustrator in a children's book, you've got a fun work of art, that you and your children can cherish for years to come. This time Gaiman pairs up with Dave McKean for a fun and wild ride in "Crazy Hair."

"Crazy Hair" is about a girl who meets a man with hair that can only be called crazy, and that might be an understatement. He describes to her the many things that live in his hair, and she attempts to tame his hair. At first it seems that she will be successful, but then she gets sucked into the hair! She has a lot of fun in there and you will have a lot of fun going with her.

The illustrations in this book are abstract, but it is still very clear what you are viewing. I had a lot of fun looking through them! This book would be a great jumping off point for many discussions with your child about both imagination and art.
