Stephanie's Ponytail

Stephanie's Ponytail

by Robert Munsch Illustrated by Michael Martchenko
A little girl who is determined to strike a blow for nonconformity manages to arrive at school every day with a hairdo more outraegous than the day before. And each time, the cast of copycats grows and grows --- until the day she threatens to shave her head! The strong female voice will speak to many, asserting the importance of individuality and independent thought. Full color throughout.
