We have just had our latest Chatterbooks meeting and looked at Crazy Hair by Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean. It got a mixed response; the girls were ok with it; Hollie loved it giving it top marks, whereas the boys Oliver and Jordan didn't like it at all. Guess people will just have to read it and make up their own minds!!

She also gave it 3 stars. Ellie thought the illustrations were good and she enjoyed the part were the cats were playing with the string and you had to lift the flaps. Hollie enjoyed the fact the cats were having a good time in the book, she thought the illustrations were unusual but fitted in well with the story. She enjoyed it that much she gave it a 5 star rating. Faye thought the book was quite funny but that the cats were unusual. She liked the illustrations and gave it another 5 stars.
