Crazy Hair

Publisher: Bloomsbury

Originating in a distant bad-hair day of Gaiman's, this short poem from 2005 is rejuvenated with McKean's distinctive and inventive images.

McKean has illustrated several of Gaiman's picture books and novels, and here involves the reader closely with the crazy hair itself and its amazing occupants.

The resulting spreads interrogate the text, challenging the viewer to reach beyond the words. Gaiman's rhythmic verse invites even the youngest readers to join in and to learn it. His imagination runs riot with a plethora of noisy, lively and amazing inhabitants in that crazy hair.

Fans of graphic fiction will find as much depth and challenge in this book as younger readers who revel in the words themselves and the energy of the images.
