(3 Ratings)
Price: $4.38
Aydil’s best friend Liz has messy hair, so why can’t she? It’s easy and doesn’t involve The Brush. But when two knots form in the back of Aydil’s head, they soon become three, then four, and Mom says if Aydil doesn’t let her Brush the Knots Out, Aydil will have to get ALL her hair cut off so it won’t become a Nest for Birds. Then Aydil’s personal bully, Scrawny Tawny, can’t leave her hair knots alone, even pulling them on the playground. But bad goes to worse when Aydil starts losing friends over her knotty hair and Child Services gets involved. Aydil’s parents could go to jail for “‘glect!” Is there any way to make it all right? What can a five-and-a-half year old do?

    "Delightfully spirited, believable little girl!!" Aydil Vice and her Disgustin' Hair Knots is a delightful story about a very likable five-year-old. Aydil's reactions to having her hair brushed are very believable. (I remember when my daughter was that age and hated to have the tangles combed out of her waist-length hair.) The book is sprinkled with laugh-out-loud comments by Aydil, while showing the fears and jealousies of Aydil and her classmates in a true-to-life manner. When Aydil and her best friend, Liz have a contest to see who can have the most tangled hair, a third girl gets them in trouble, giving the story depth as well as drama/comedy. Just like a 'grown-up' book, Aydil Vice is divided into chapters, but the 70 pages are a quick read with short sentences, and a direct, easy-to-grasp plot line. Adorable illustrations are sprinkled throughout, capturing the spirit of five-year-old Aydil. The book ends happily, leaving the reader wanting more. A cute read, one you... More > will enjoy reading with your child. I highly recommend this book to children who love Junie B. Jones and Judy Moody. Ann Marie Bradley< Less

    "Delightful Aydil Vice!" Aydil Vice and her Disgustin' Hair Knots is a delightful story. A lot of books claim to be suitable for all ages, but Aydil's tale has a rare appeal. It's a story of family, friendship, troubles and solutions and, of course, disgustin' hair knots. Aydil tells her own story in a thoroughly convincing manner. I could almost believe she was sitting in front of me, bright-eyed, jumping up now and again to twirl and dance, and telling me about her life. The syntax is very realistic. Some people put "cute" language in the mouths of child characters, but Aydil speaks, thinks and acts like a real child. Brava, Aydil! By the way, don't let the 70 pp count bother you if you're a young reader. There are lots of lively pictures and plenty of white space so the story races along.
