Rocco and his friends are superheroes whose superpowers come from their long, unwieldy manes. One day, Rocco gets “captured” by his parents and driven to the “villain’s lair”, the barbershop. Rocco’s “powers” were stolen by the barber so he tried replacing them by putting various items upon his head where his huge mass of hair used to be. None of it worked! It turns out all of Rocco’s friends had been captured as well and their “powers” were also stolen. Rocco and his friends tried together to replace their powers but nothing worked until they saw a kid who needed their help. They saved the day and realized they were still superheroes, with or without their hair.
Super Hair-O and the Barber of Doom is a fun read all kids who have been dragged to the barber can relate to. And it sends a great message that the world will not end even after a haircut! Its unique comic book style and fantastic, colorful illustrations are sure to capture the attention of all kids ages 4-6. This book was inspired by the childhood of author and illustrator John Rocco, who is a Caldecott Honor winner for his picture book, Blackout.
