Isabel is determined to be very very good, but a good day turns horrid when she finds a pair of scissors on Mommy's dressing table. Snip by snip, her curly locks fall to the floor. Maybe this "haircut" wasn't such a good idea after all!
Cutting your own hair is a universal "mistake" of childhood. Grown-ups and children alike easily remember the "little" haircut they gave themselves. With this reassuring story, young children will understand that even horrid mistakes can usually be fixed.

Harriet Ziefert is the author and publisher of many children's books. She hasn't had curls for a long time, but she draws on her memories of scissor-happy days in writing this book.
Elliot Kreloff is an illustrator and designer who lives in New York City's Harlem with his daughter, his partner and two shih-tzus.
PreS–The classic rhyme is expanded into a story of Isabel, a precocious preschooler who has a mop of bright red curls. One day, after struggling to brush and comb her tangled locks, she gives herself a haircut. After snipping off one curl and then another, she is left with a motley head of hair. Finally, a visit to the beauty shop repairs the damage, and now Isabel is back to being a little girl who once had a little curl, right in the middle of [her] forehead. Bright, childlike cartoon drawings capture the mischievous child and her tolerant but wise parents. Many families will relate to this title.–Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, NY
