The story is about a boy whose hair is ugly and looks like a tornado. Then his hair went out of control. His mom and his dad heard a loud sound. Then his sister, his mom, and dad went to the bathroom and talked to the boy. The boy said that he wouldn?t come out. Then, his mom tried to put the ugly hair down for school to take a picture in his class. But, they always knew that he looked weird anyway. The boy himself wanted a different hairstyle.

My favorite part of the story was when his hair turned to the same thing like in the bathroom. When his hair looked like spaghetti. He didn?t want his hair to look like spaghetti. His mom put a hat on his head. The book was kind of scary because the pictures showed his hair turning very different with a lot of colors.

I will recommend this book to boys like myself. I am 8 years old. This book is for kids like me who like to laugh when they read a book. The pictures were very funny and not really real.
