Hair in Funny Places by Babette Cole

Book Description

Girls and boys are always curious and sometimes even alarmed by the behaviour of their bodies as they grow up. Puberty being a particularly unsettling time, Babette Cole has made this the subject of the fifth title in her bestselling series of 'family dilemmas'. Who else but Babette would have the temerity to tackle this subject in a picture book and the genius to carry it off! In "Hair in Funny Places" her artwork is without exaggeration some of the best she has ever done: it is brilliant. The text takes the form of a conversation between a small girl and her teddy bear, and is ingenious and funny. It is the behaviour of Mr and Mrs Hormone (wonderfully depicted) which is responsible for and plays havoc with the physical and emotional states of girls and boys throughout puberty. This book is bound to be controversial but Babette has never taken the conventional path and her readers love her for her outrageous approach to little mentioned topics.

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » A child asks her teddy bear about growing up and gets an earful in this wildly irreverent look at puberty. Its all the work of Mr. and Mrs. Hormone (and their ratlike dog), the teddy explains, who concoct potions that give children bosoms, pimples, hair in new places, radical mood swings, and ultimately the urge and ability to make babies. Depicting the Hormones as hairy monsters bearing gleefully malevolent expressions, Cole (Bad Habits!, 1999, etc.) tracks male and female physical changes in a pair of unclothed, skinny-limbed teenagers. Though many books, starting with Robie H. Harriss Its Perfectly Normal (1994), cover the territory in less ghoulish fashion, here at least readers will get some basic information, plus the idea that certain rough patches on the road to adulthood are survivable. (Picture book/nonfiction. 10-14) (Kirkus Reviews)
