This copy of The Unexpectedly Bad Hair of Barcelona Smith by Keith Graves (author of Frank was a Monster Who Wanted to Dance) is a HB with a DJ. It was published by Philomel Books in 2006. It is a First Edition, 1st Impression. Condition: Very Good/Very Good--a few pages show slight handling; most pages show no handling; binding tight; tiny bump in the bottom corner of the front cover; covers look new otherwise; DJ shows faint signs of handling, but looks close to new.
From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 3–Barcelona Smith never takes risks. He avoids roses for fear of thorns, playgrounds for fear of injury, animals for fear of germs, and smiling for fear of flying bugs. The colorful and wacky illustrations depict a severe boy in outlandish attire complete with safety goggles, a life jacket, an umbrella, and a protective helmet resting atop about four feet of thick, carefully coiffed blue hair. But one humid day, that hair develops a mind of its own: Every follicle fooped. Before Barcelona can take any precautions, the tresses take control and have him out the door riding a bike, climbing monkey bars, smelling roses, and, finally, with reckless disregard for flying bugs, even smiling. Rendered in acrylics, the large and exaggerated cartoons complement the text's wry humor. A fun choice for group settings.–Julie Roach, Cambridge Public Library, MA
