I Don't Want Curly Hair! Kindle Edition
It's messy and silly and just plain unfair.
All Curly Haired Girl has ever wanted is straight and luscious locks, but when she meets a little girl with the smoothest, silkiest hair, who says all she's ever wanted is spirally, squiggly hair, they are BOTH confused!
A hilarious tale about loving what we have. And hair, lots and lots of hair.
I Don't Want Curly Hair! is glorious new picture book for little people who always want what they can't have! From the brilliant Laura Ellen Anderson – illustrator of the bestselling Witch Wars series.

This is a fun book for those not just with curly hair at a infant school age, and she definitely seems happier with her head full of curls!
