Nominated for the 2021 CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal Once a month, Dad takes his son to the barbers, come rain or shine. But when Dad disappears, this little boy's hair grows big, ginormous, out of control - and so do his feelings. A touching and melodic story of family separation from a child's perspective from the author/illustrator duo who brought us the Amnesty International recommended picture book Luna Loves Library Day.

"A touching story about family interactions - and hair! Poet Joe Coelho tells the story of a moment of sadness in a child's life with great sensitivity and a suitably hopefuly ending." * LoveReading4Kids, Pick of the Month November 2019 *

"A lyrical, emotional look at the effect of separation, paired with Lumbers' richly textured art." -- Fiona Noble * The Bookseller *
