There's A Book

Big Bouffant by Kate Hosford and Illustrated by Holly Clifton-Brown

“Ponytails and braids! Ponytails and braids! I don’t see anything but ponytails and braids! This class needs some fashion. This class needs some fun. I’ll find a hairdo to impress everyone.”

Annabelle doesn’t want the same boring hairstyle that all the other girls have. When she spies a picture of her grandma, she has the perfect idea: a big bouffant!

But how can she make her style stand up? And will her classmates really be impressed with her daring ‘do?

Big Bouffant was one of our top ten picture books of the year during 2011 and I’ve recently learned that the author/illustrator duo that created this first gem has done it again. Their new book, Big Birthday was recently released and I can already tell you it’s just as fantastic as the first! Our review will be coming soon.

I’d highly recommend also taking a look at both the author(Kate Hosford) and illustrator(Holly Clifton-Brown) sites, they’re adorable!
