Our latest book has arrived! Introducing Messy Hair by Gretchen Grace. We are so excited to share this gem with you.

Two dolls decide to have tea, but realize their hair is too messy for a proper tea party. They try brushing it but to no avail. They imagine other solutions, like a bird bath, a car wash, and then (A-HA!) they realize they should go to the beauty parlor where hi-jinks ensues.
