The Scary Hair of Sarah O’Shea

photo (45)     It’s that time of the year when the scary things are creeping about…..ghosts and goblins and witches, oh my!  But have you ever heard of a hairstyle that is just…..scary?

Young readers of the Bluebonnet Armadillo Adventure Series, here is a special book for you!  “The Scary Hair of Sarah O’Shea,” written by Sharon Feldt and illustrated by Heather Karstens, tells the story of a cute red-haired girl with large red glasses. Sarah has bright red, scary hair….and lots of it!

It seems that Sarah’s out-of-control hair is becoming a problem at school.  She tries hats to hide her hair, but none of them can quite contain her giant curls. (Perhaps she should have tried a sunbonnet!!)

Sarah’s hair may be scary, but readers will have lots of laughs as they read about Sarah’s attempts to tame her unruly red hairstyle.  Fortunately, a friend has a helpful suggestion for Sarah that saves the day! Heather Karstens’ illustrations are delightful and comical, sure to bring a smile and a laugh to all readers.

Author Sharon Feldt, a retired kindergarten teacher, wrote a lovely Christmas tale last year, “The Stable.” (Check my blog archives for a review.)  MBC shared this book with her young friends who live in Africa.  So, Sharon is an internationally-known author!

MBC and I are pleased to recommend this latest book from Sharon. (After all, MBC is partial to “red-heads!”)  Order your copy from

Keep reading and writing, and Happy Halloween!  Bluebonnet Armadillo
