    “This is a fabulous book that has one of some of my favorite themes in picture books- the nighttime adventures that silly, sleeping grown-ups never know about.The clever hero not only braves the dark, but he puts his father's barber shop to good use in the off- hours by giving haircuts to the neighborhood monsters. The illustrations are wonderful, and honor Sendak's little boy adventures in the Night Kitchen and Where the Wild Things are. Lots of laughs for everyone in this winner.”

    Description


    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.
