The Girl with the Bird's Nest Hair

A little girl does not like brushing her tangled tresses, but when a varied selection of birds set up home in her hair, she knows she certainly cannot brush it and upset them. Nothing her mother says or does makes any difference, until one day when the birds become a little more than she can handle!

"Sarah Dyer's unique and quirky illustrations suit the story perfectly. The humans are bristling with life and emotion, whilst all the different birds are a joy to pore over . . . A fantastic book for any child on the cusp of reading" (

“A delightful cautionary tale" (Telegraph Magazine)

"Wittily illustrated, this is a delightful story” (The Independent on Sunday)

“The charm lies in its naïve illustrations . . . the childlike pictures have muted colours, pretty use of collage, interesting details and an airy sense of design” (The Sunday Times)
