Product description

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 3-A girl named Alopecia lives in a town called Follicle. Every year she plays Rapunzel in the town festival, but when her beautiful long hair starts to fall out, her role is in jeopardy and she worries about being teased by her classmates. When the teacher explains the girl's problem to the class, they all agree to cut off their hair and donate it to be used in the play. Although youngsters who are afflicted with alopecia (according to the author, this scalp disease affects more than four million people in the United States) are undoubtedly embarrassed, afraid, and angry, this book will not do much to allay those feelings. The writing is stiff and self-conscious, the resolution is quite unrealistic, and the illustrations are cartoony. The fairy-tale treatment doesn't work here; children would be better served by a straightforward explanation.-Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo & Erie County Public Library, NY
