Medusa refuses to care for her hair, her long locks getting knottier and dirtier with each passing page. Her hair rebellion elicits frozen expressions of shock from her family, but nothing will convince Medusa to brush. Only her hairdresser approaches Medusa with bravery and a blade, successfully solving the problem . . . with a short haircut! All are pleased with this drastic yet adorable solution. Leslie Patricelli’s depictions of this physical comedy bring a lively visual narrative to Joan Holub’s expertly focused text. Includes a summary of the original
Medusa’s Wild Hair myth at the end.
Also available in the Mini Myths series: Don't Get Lost, Odysseus and Good Job, Athena!
"[T]he story is a cute one with a familiar toddler scenario and charming illustrations...this is a lighthearted look at the conflict between grown-ups and strong-willed tots with their own agendas."— Kirkus Reviews
