Hairs on Bears

Unknown - 1994

This book is a galloping romp through silly-rhyme-land. Geraldine Ryan-Lush wields a jolly pen; the trials of the calamitous shedding dog, and allergy sufferers vs. pet lovers, are told in a rollicking style that never lets up:

Hairs on fingers
hairs on toes
hairs right up Aunt Bertha's nose

Now you see them
now you don't
Now guests come
and now they won't.

Normand Cousineau's outrageous, stylized illustrations, with deep saturated colors, never fall a single step behind. They reflect and enrich the uproarious fun of the poem to perfection. As a special bonus, the endpapers have been designed for use as a board game - a "snakes and ladders" course incorporating the elements of the story. It can be played with checker pieces and a die.
