5.0 out of 5 stars
Great read-out-loud story, 2 Nov 2011
I read `Dead Hairy' out loud to my children (10 and 7 years old) and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. It inspired much laughter and speculation and discussion, as the best books do, and it is peppered with unusual characters (from Squashy Grandma to Chester the chest hair to timid Constable Wibberly). The unusual theme of hair is woven through the story in most unexpected ways, and more serious subjects like family relationships are dealt with with a light touch. Please let there be a sequel and please let Fernando find his long-lost love!
