The young son of the town barber opens a barber shop, imitating his father. Yes, the boy has his own barber shop…of a different sort. Once a month during the full moon, the barbershop serves only monsters. His clients include famous monsters such as Frankenstein and the Wolfman. Some monsters have lots of hair (Wolfman) and some have no hair at all (skelton). What does a barber do to a head with no hair? At the end of the night the monsters help the boy clean up all the mess they have made. The book has great illustrations and the wording is simple and funny. The monsters are very cartoonish and will not cause fright even in small children. Overall I highly recommend this book to any young child under the age of 9. It would be a perfect book for around Halloween.
