In this vibrant and exquisitely illustrated picture book written by Commonwealth Prize–winning Jamaican Canadian Olive Senior, and with pictures by the acclaimed artist Laura James (the team that created Anna Carries Water), a young girl learns to love her difficult-to-manage voluminous and boonoonoonous hair.

“The energy between mother and child is infectious, and the rhythmic text is great fun to read. This girl’s road to self-acceptance is playful, easy, and filled with love.”
