Even Monsters Need Haircuts


Even Monsters Need Haircuts
by Matthew McElligott
Walker & Co., 2010. 32 pages. Picture Book.

A little boy, who is son of a barber, has a secret life. After the moon rises, the boy sneaks out to his father’s barbershop and lets in his own “customers” in through the back door. Frankenstein, Dracula, a mummy and Medusa—they all need haircuts too! And this imaginative little boy is just the one to do it. The simple but colorful illustrations will draw in any child and make them smile as they study every page. Each picture has lots of visual details about the difficulties of cutting the various monsters hair—such as the picture that shows the little boy wearing a blindfold as he arranges Medusa’s snakes. Have a little monster lover in your family? This is the book for you!
