horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

Will Gets a Haircut
by Olof and Lena Landstrom
Age Range: Under_5
Will is taken to the barbers by his mother. While he is waiting, Will decides on a very unusual hairstyle! The barber cuts and combs and cuts and combs, until he gives Will exactly what he wants. Now Will really does look different for his school party. When he arrives everyone looks a little shocked and amazed, but then they
all want a haircut too! Created in the 1990s by Olof and Lena Landström, the cartoon-style character of Will has become very popular in Sweden.
This is a witty picture book that has a wonderful humorous visual style that children will love. Other titles in the series are Will Goes to the Post Office, Will Goes to the Beach and Will’s New Cap.
