RED HEAD by Edward Eager


by Edward Eager

Pub Date: Oct. 2nd, 1951
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin

Rhymed nonsense of comfort to all red heads who cringe or have tantrums when the nickname "Red" blisters the air. "Fritz" was a perfectly nice name, but because of his flaming top-knot people said "Hi, Red!". Running away didn't help either because been, bulls, and even ships at sea were much too curious, or angry or entirely mistaken about the luminous noggin. But Fritz is very glad he has such an unusual head of hair when his crowning glory lights him home to safety.
