Just before midnight, on the night of a full moon, a young barber stays out past his bedtime to go to work. Although his customers are mostly regulars, they are anything but normal-after all, even monsters need haircuts. Business is steady all night, and this barber is prepared for anything with his scissors, rotting tonic, horn polish, and stink wax. It's a tough job, but someone's got to help these creatures maintain their ghoulish good looks.
Perfect for Halloween, this is a hilarious story about a boy who follows in his father's footsteps . . . in his own monstrously unique way.
MATTHEW McELLIGOTT is the author of several books for children, including The Lion's Share, Absolutely Not, and Backbeard and the Birthday Suit. He teaches at Sage College and also visits elementary schools around the country.

Ein süßes, wunderschön illustriertes Buch für englischsprachige/englischlernende Kinder ab ca. 3 Jahren an dem man noch bis mindestens 99 jahre Freude haben kann! Einfach zauberhaft!
It might be a little too choppy in places where the idea and sentence seem cut short, but the voice inflections you're able to do with the story make up for it. The illustrations are great, some need explaining, but the fit perfectly with the plot placement!
The boy carefully obeys all the rules his parents taught him. Of course, there are a few more rules his parents might have added if they had thought of them. But then, this story would not have been nearly as charming.
