Bella’s Fringe written by Marie Munro, illustrated by Rachel Doragh

Published by Nana’s Shed Books, an imprint of Kelsey House Productions

Bella’s Fringe is a new Kiwi children’s picture book in the series from Nana’s Shed Books. Remember Jacob from “Nana’s Shed”? Bella is his sister.

Using the simple theme of a haircut, it tells the humorous story of young Bella, who is a creative and innovative rebel. She won’t have her hair cut because it has so many practical and comic uses – as a rug for her knees, a shade from the sun, a hammock for her brother or a swing for her cat. Her crowning glory is a problem for everyone, except her, until she becomes hopelessly tangled in it. Then she chooses to take drastic action.
