Wally Does Not Want A Haircut by Amanda Driscoll, Knopf, 2016. ISBN 9780553535792. Reviewed by John R. Clark, MLIS
Wally is a most stubborn sheep, content to be bedraggled, his wool full of greenery and twigs. When Mama suggests a trim, he digs his heels in, refusing to comply. All the other barnyard creatures get trimmed and gussied up in order to encourage Wally. They start an old fashioned hoedown and Wally, who has wedged himself between two huge hay bales is ready to join them, but his unruly wool refuses to play nice, leaving him with no choice but to join the trimmed and spiffed for a good dancing time.
Told in rhyme, with lovely illustrations, this book will be a hit at story time, whether at school, the library or at bedtime.
