The Knot Fairy by Bobbie Hinman - review
Here's a book whose time has come. It's a bit pedestrian, but I know dozens of little girls (and a couple little boys) and their frustrated moms who should share this book. It blames a cute little fairy for the thorny tangles that kids get in their long hair, and celebrates the resulting mess. Mine was cut super-short in second grade because my mom and I just couldn't take the fighting and the tears trying to comb it anymore. Conditioner, by the way, may have already been invented in the early '70's, and we should have had some.
