Themes: Bands/ Funny stories/ Rock Stars
Mister Spears has a big hair problem. The hairs in his ears simply will not stop growing in spite of all the innovative ideas he comes up with. Then, one day, a truly brilliant idea comes to him, an idea that will lift him out of his routine day to day affairs and possibly turn him into a rock star.
There is something about this book that really tickles the funny bone of small children. I only have to half bring it out of the bag when I take it to share with a group of 3 and 4 year olds I read to once a week and they start chanting Mr Spears Mr Spears in anticipation.
