The Girl with the Bird's-nest Hair

Publisher: Bloomsbury Children's Books

Hollie's hatred of the hair brush results in her tangled curls attracting a range of nesting birds, until the size and weight of her load squash her and she gives in to her mother's pleas for a tidy hairstyle.

Less engaging than Dyer's other books, but the illustrations of Hollie and how she acquires each new occupant are lively and funny.
