Harriet's Horrible Hair Day by Dawn Lesley Stewart

Harriet's Horrible Hair Day

A fun, zany picturebook about loving who you are.

"It looks weird," taunts her brother.

When Harriet's sister offers to fix the
rebellious curl, the three of them launch
into a series of outrageous, hair-raising
schemes to tame Harriet's wayward ringlet.
Despite their best efforts, though,
two...three...four...and still more
curls break loose.

Best Bets for the Classroom
(Picture Books) ―Virginia Center for the Book

“The elaborate, messy, and absurd attempts at repair are entertaining, as is the dialogue of the sibs (who are clearly enjoying their experimentation) as they put Harriet through their tender ministrations….[The artwork] has an electric energy that will appeal to viewers. The anthropomorphized dog and cat cavort divertingly through the proceedings; though the siblings appear not to notice them, kids in the audience will get a kick out of their antics. If you’re looking to take the knots out of a bad hair day, try this.” ―The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books


Lacee Dorsett has hidden her mental ability to travel through time – it's dangerous and forbidden. But now her best friend, Tyler, needs her help to find his psychic pet tar-tung. Lacee soon discovers other tar-tung have also been stolen. Meanwhile, a crippling addiction is annihilating the upper class. The ruthless Zhing-Blade Alliance is involved in both crimes and is trying to assassinate Tyler and Lacee as they move closer to the truth.

Lacee discovers why the tar-tung have been so cruelly targeted after she finds an unlikely ally in Maddox, a phantom desperate to reunite his imprisoned spirit with his physical body. Between the Zhing-Blade Alliance and the corrupt government, Lacee, Tyler and Maddox don't know who to trust. Lacee fears her gift. Tyler begs her to use it. And Maddox knows a secret that could kill them all.

There are many deceptions that only a mist-seer can see through. If she lives long enough.
