Deep in the cellars of the O'Brien Press is a safe that contained stories too horrible to be read. But somebody has broken into that safe and the stories have been released. This is one of those Forbidden Files. 'It started with my favourite girlband WitchCraft. They were beautiful. They could sing and dance and above all they were cool. And I wanted the WitchCraft hairdo more than anything else in the world. But then I got it, and that's when the trouble started. Because it turned out that my hair was evil...' Ten year old Melanie gets her WitchCraft hairdo in a mysterious salon that appears out of nowhere. Although thrilled with it, she soon realizes that her hair is evil and has a mind of its own. From cutting up all her Mum's clothes to summoning a plague of rats, Melanie's hair tries to destroy her whole life.

About the Author:

Born in Dublin in 1973, Oisin McGann spent his childhood there and in Drogheda, County Louth. He studied art at Ballyfermot Senior College and Dun Laoghaire School of Art and Design, and went on to work in illustration, design and film animation. He moved to London in 1998, where he eventually found work as an art director and copy writer for an advertising agency. After three and a half years of advertising, he began to fear for his immortal soul. He returned to Ireland in the summer of 2002 much as he had left ... with no job, no home and some meagre savings. He now lives in Meath and works as an author, freelance illustrator and artist. You can check out Oisin's own website at oisinmcgann.com.
