My Family's Hair (Hairytale)

Thea Lu | China

This is a book about hairstyle and its relation with personal expression, aiming to inspire readers a new perspective of viewing our hair: hair is more than a body part; It is also an important part of self-expression and personal identity. Furthermore, starting from the idea of hair, I hope the book could let young readers more open-minded to appreciate one's unique choice of self-representation and meanwhile encourage readers to be themselves confidently.
Initially, the book is created for the 4-7 children but I believe the ironical humour that exists in between texts and images enables the book to be appreciated by a wider cross-age audience.
