The Man with Small Hair
written by Jane Jolly
Little Hare / Hardie Grant Egmont Australia 2018
The man with small hair loves his small hair.
He also loves his short pants, zing-a-ding boots and clickety-clackety beads. He cartwheels with joy and bursts into song when he wears them. But the man with small hair is the only person who wears his hair small, and no one else has colourful boots or musical beads either. He decides to hide the things that make him happy in order to blend in with the crowd. Until one day he looks in the mirror and doesn’t recognise the man staring back at him.
The Man with Small Hair is an uplifting story about self-confidence, bravery and dancing to the beat of your own drum.
