Nonfiction Picture Book Challenge 2012 Week 3- Big Wig

Kathleen Krull's Big Wig: A Little History of Hair offers readers a fun and sometimes irreverent look at the history of hairstyles.  Brunettes might not agree with Krull's take on the history of blond hair, but they will surely giggle at Peter Malone's illustrations of the fashionable hairstyles of 1785 France.  There is lots to like about this book, including the extra facts at the end of the text, aptly titled, Hair Extensions. A fun and creative look at the evolution and significance of hairstyles.
