This is a picture book that is based on the author's life. Basically, the main character is a young boy that thinks he has super powers emanating from his wild, unruly hair. When his father takes him to the barber to have his mop cutoff, the boy thinks his powers are gone. However, with his friends, he finds that his superpowers are not actually gone, and that their superpowers come from them. The illustrations in this book are very engaging. Paired with the story, I found this to be q high-quality book that would appeal to children. Its narrative format makes it different than other books that follow a simpler structure.

I love the hair. I love the kid drama and action. I love the page where the kids in their full glory walk toward me "And together, we were unstoppable." Love that page. And I love that John Rocco includes a pic of himself from back in the day on the author flap. And the kids like it too! ( )

One hairy tale. ( )

This book was very different, but in the best way. I think it was aimed more towards boys, but it was very fun to read. The illustrations showed how the boys viewed their hair giving them super powers. Whether their hair looked like a fro, or was very long, these friends all fought crime. The boys were jumping off of ramps with their bikes and keeping people safe. The organization also really showed a lot about the powers and what they did. When the boys all got their hair cut off, a girl wanted to prove to them that they still had great powers so she had them safe her stuffed animal. This proved to the boys that they still had their abilities at the end of the story. The big message in this story is that you are great no matter what. The boys thought they only had their super powers because of their crazy hair only to realize it was themselves that were super and powerful. ( )
