Editorial Reviews

"Crazy. But what would you expect from Neil Gaiman, creator of Coraline and other otherworldly marvels? Here he is aided and abetted by frequent co-conspirator Dave McKean (The Wolves in the Walls, etc.) in a versified celebration of one huge head of hair, hair that, thanks to some mysterious technical/digital process, looks and almost feels like hair. It's on the head of a digitally enhanced creature - an Elvis look-alike might be one way to describe him - who is the putative narrator of this fast-paced ditty. Type faces and fonts change and enlarge (explode?), putting emphasis where emphasis could be said to belong."
