From the publisher

A fast-paced, comical story for early readers, in which Dad's hair takes off through the open window to freedom! One day, Dad's hair decided it was tired of being brushed and combed. It wanted a life of its own, to see the world. It took off. Out of the bathroom, into the kitchen, and before you could say, "Hairsta la vista, baby!" it was gone. Dad gave chase around the town. He spots his hair hiding in the lawn, on the road, at the zoo -it's amazing how many things look like hair. He gives up. Dad tries to accept life without hair. Then the postcards arrive. The hair is on a round-the-world trip and Dad is still bald. Until one day the unbelievable happens and the hair comes back. This is a fast-paced tour-de-force, a wonderfully absurd story packed with wordplay and full colour hilarious illustrations. When Dad's Hair Took Off is a comical chapter book for early readers or for any child to enjoy reading aloud with a grownup who relates! A fun book to celebrate and share with Dad on Father's Day or any day. Translated from the German edition by Melody Shaw, where it was shortlisted for multiple awards. Joerg Muhle studied illustration in Offenbach and Paris. He has been illustrating for books and magazines since 2000. He is the author and illustrator of worldwide bestselling interactive bedtime book for toddlers, Tickle My Ears.
