School Library Journal - 04/01/2014 PreS-Gr 1—Sadie's little sister Eva has long curly blond tresses "down to her tush" (Sadie's own mop is short, straight, and brown). No braids or pigtails can tame Eva's hair, and it has never been cut before. Sadie decides to "help" by grabbing their mom's scissors and giving Eva a haircut, with predictably dreadful results. She tries to hide the evidence from their parents but eventually admits to the misdeed after Eva tells on her, promising not to do it again. Allen's playful pencil, watercolor, and digital illustrations perfectly capture the wildness of Eva's hair and the gentle humor of the story. Based on a real-life haircutting incident with Cohen's young daughters, this story will resonate with many young readers, though hopefully not inspire them to get into their own haircutting shenanigans.—Yelena Alekseyeva-Popova, formerly at Chappaqua Library, NY - Copyright 2014 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
