Zinzi likes her hair the way it is. Her mother wants it cut. On the way to the hairdresser Zinzi sees how many different kinds of hair there can be. Her imagination runs wild. But what happens at the hairdresser is even more crazy…

This hilarious first reader, beautifully and whackily illustrated by Patricia de Villiers, explores the power struggle between a mother and her child over the all important right to decide on whose hair it is anyway
