Mop Top

Our rating: ***½

Young “Moppy” doesn’t want to get a haircut, but is sent against his will to the barber shop by himself. What will convince him to get a haircut?

Mop Top is yet another delightful book from Don Freeman. Everything works out well, with a quite funny turn-around before the end. Some picture books are more fun for the adults reading aloud than for children, but here, everything is equally enjoyable by all ages. The pictures are fun, too.
