My Thoughts on The Frizz:
My first thought on the children’s book The Frizz, was “a kid’s book featuring a girl with frizzy hair? Count me in!” As a girl with frizzy, unruly hair, who grew up to be a woman with frizzy hair, I was instantly on board and excited for this story.
Every morning, Jeannie wakes up and looks in the mirror. And every morning she sees her frizzy hair and has an idea of what to do with it! So every morning, after Jeannie has transformed herself into whatever her imagination has made her that day (a lion, a rockstar, a mop?!?!?), her mom has to get that frizz tamed! This reminded me a lot of when I was younger and my dad had to fix mine and my sister’s hair and… well, it’s amazing either of us still has hair left!
The story itself is really cute and funny. I think it’d be great for a little girl with frizzy hair.
I wasn’t a big fan of the ending, but it wasn’t horrible. I think I was just expecting something different.
Overall, The Frizz is a cute, fun children’s book. What do you think? Have you read The Frizz or can you relate to the torture of having your frizzy hair “tamed” before school as a kid? Leave me a comment below!
