Ella Kazoo will not brush her hair.
She hides in the cupboard and under the stair.
She roars at her mum
Like a big growly bear,
she whines and she moans
and she howls in despair,
but Ella Kazoo will not brush her hair.
No matter what Mum tries, Ella Kazoo refuses to brush her hair – or to have it brushed for her. While her hair keeps growing, it gets more and more tangled, but Ella will not back down. But, when it finally gets too much for her she offers a solution of her own – a haircut.
This is a fun rhyming tale with wonderful rhythm and a quirky use of end sounds which are repeated multiple times rather than just in pairs. Adults will enjoy reading the text aloud, whilst kids will love listening to it. The acrylic illustrations, by Cathy Wilcox, are a wonderful complement, with the golden locks especially brought to life.
Well able to endure repeat readings.
