Robert Munsch never disappoints in his hilarious picture book for kids. And this one is no different. It even had me in stitches! Everyone around the house was wondering why I was laughing so hard.
This book is about Alex who wants to have the same kind of red hair that his best friend Arie has. Arie is tickled by the compliment that Alex gives him about his hair color and then promises to help Alex get the same color hair. The only problem is the Alex has to drink and consume many different concoctions, none of which are easy to take. But he did persevere.
Little did Alex know, but Arie wanted to have black hair just like Alex. So, Alex promised to give him the secret to turn his hair black. Arie also has to consume a lot of really different concoctions.
The morale of the story? Perhaps we should be happy with our own hair color and stop emulating all of our friends.
Robert Munsch will keep readers reading this wonderful story and laughing out loud!
Thank you Robert Munsch for such a wonderful story!
