This spin on a familiar comical trope offers some chuckles, but the valuation of conformity over personal choice may leave readers scratching their heads—and maybe wondering where cleanliness, never mentioned, comes in.

Synopsis

When Harry stubbornly refuses to brush his hair, it grows to large and tangled that two doves decide to make it their home.

Harry hates brushing his hair, but when two doves decide to build a nest in his tangled mop, he has bigger problems than just avoiding an annoying comb. As Harry’s hair continues to grow more and more tangled, a tree begins to grow right out of his head! The tree attracts more birds before their singing starts to drive Harry crazy. Thankfully, his mom comes to the rescue with a solution, but not before Harry learns a big lesson about the importance of keeping himself and his hair neat and tidy.
