Lerner and Goldhor are so agenda-driven-their message to Be Your Own Person! feels like it's being nailed to your forehead-that their story is more like a lecture, despite the peerless Oxenbury's sweet-hearted illustrations. Franny has a great mop of wild red hair-her pride and joy. Mother, sister, and father all advise her to get it cut-or at least tamed-but she refuses. Comes the day of the family reunion and her mother insists that she get a hair-do, which is essentially piling the hair in a topknot. At first Franny is appalled, but when a bird takes up residence in her hair, she.
by Susan Goldhor, Harriet Goldhor Lerner, Susan Goldhar. Kranny loves her long, frizzy hair, even though it's always getting her into trouble. It ties itself in knots on the buttons of her dress and gets caught in the refrigerator door. Her parents want her to get it cut so it's nice and neat like her smug sister Bertha's, but Franny refuses.
At the family reunio Franny B. Kranny, There's a Bird in Your Hair! is a story about a little girl named Franny who has long, frizzy, bright red hair. Her parents and sister insist that she should cut her hair or change it for the upcoming family reunion.

Authors (and sisters) Harriet Lerner and Susan Goldhor previously teamed up on What's So Terrible About Swallowing an Apple Seed?. In their latest endeavor, they create an appealing heroine and a thoroughly delightful, funny story that will have young readers everywhere daring to be different. World-renowned, award-winning illustrator Helen Oxenbury depicts with great humor the fiercely independent redhead, her mother (who has her own bizarre 'do), her prissy, sleek-haired sis, and the rest of the Kranny clan. Instead I received a paperback that looked very used.
Franny B Kranny loved her long red frizzy hair even if it was always getting stuck in things and causing trouble. So when her mother drags her to the hairdresser before a family reunion, she isn't happy. The hairdresser does his best to pin it up and make it look neat, while Franny schemes to undo his work as soon as she's out of the chair. The dynamic team of Harriet Lerner and Susan Goldhor have written a marvelous story about an individual who dares to be different and really knows her own mind. Their charming, witty text is complemented by Helen Oxenbury's bright, expressive and humorous illustrations that really captures the essence of strong willed Franny and the rest of her unusual family. Perfect for youngsters 4-8, Franny B Kranny, There's a Bird in your Hair is a treasure and a book kids want to read again and again. I really liked this book.
