Kindergarten-Grade 3-- Camilla is an eccentric woman who dwells in a tower with no door. All the necessities of life are delivered through a window. She passes the time sculpting her hair, using bobby pins, a comb, a brush, and tons of hairspray to create upsweeps that duplicate bowls of fruit, waves, hilltops, and trees. All this changes on Camilla's birthday when a girl named Mozelle, who has been trying to fly with a breathtaking lack of success, lands on the balcony. Camilla restyles Mozelle's locks; Mozelle tells Camilla about the outside world. The result, after some humorous problems, is a parachute hairstyle with which Camilla can leave the tower and ride the winds. Later she cuts a door in her abode and opens a salon business. Children will enjoy the tongue-in-cheek story, Mozelle's intelligence, and Camilla's wild hairdos. However, the narrative is marred by an extremely abrupt ending. Tusa's watercolor illustrations are engaging, having the humor of David Small's drawings and the sense of line and movement present in Julie Vivas's work. The bright colors and excellent use of white space make this a good book for sharing, especially for units or story times highlighting individuality or creativity. --Ann Welton, Thomas Academy, Kent, WA
