Hurricane Henrietta is famous for something she's never done: She's never cut her hair. It billows like a sail. Little kids play in her hair, her brother's guinea pig gets lost in it, and it starts a tornado at the vegetable market, where rutabagas and eggplants rain down on the startled shoppers! Henrietta enjoys her fame, but now it's time for Safari Camp. How will her mountainous mane fare in the woods? Will it fit in the tent? Will birds and squirrels build nests around her ears? Finally Henrietta visits Francine at the Bald Eagle Hair Salon. The floor becomes a sea of wavy tresses, but at last Henrietta is pleased with her new look, and Harry the wig salesman will have a new line of Henrietta's Wonder Wigs. Lindsay Lee Johnson deftly weaves imagination and realism to create a fast-paced, laugh-out-loud story. Wally Neibart, an illustrator for forty years, brings Henrietta's billowing hair to life, making her a legend in her own time. This is a first children's book for both.
