Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You

The Book

Sam looks in the mirror one morning and confides in her beloved dog Benny that she really needs a haircut because she can hardly see. She leashes her dog and off they go to the local hair salon, Chez Pierre.  
Pierre greets her and assures her that he can give her a cut and directs her ( and Benny ) to a seat where they wait their turn to be called.  He offers her a magazine to read while she waits but Sam doesn't need it... there's way too much interesting activity going on around her. Customers are getting snipped, curlers are projecting out from underneath helmet-shaped hair dryers and others are patiently waiting for their cut and style.  
When it's Sam's turn and she is caped and sitting in the chair Benny begins to bark and cause havoc. Pierre suggests that Benny is not scared as to what is happening to Sam but Benny wants his hair cut too.  Do you think Pierre is correct?  
Kids reading the book discover the sights and sounds connected to a busy hair salon.  The illustrations are very well done.  They are whimsical and full of expression and fun. Kids will experience through this delightful book exactly what a trip to get a haircut in a salon will entail.  I really like the book and I wholeheartedly recommend it.  Vive la coupe de cheveux!
