KIRKUS REVIEW

 In this very brief, tongue-in-cheek Swedish import, young Will (Will Gets a Haircut, 1993) has a fine day at the beach with his motherespecially after rain drives away any witnesses and he learns how to float and paddle about. The text runs only a line or two per page beneath deceptively simple cartoons; Will's expressions and silent commentary form an amusing counterpoint to his mother's chat. Low-key, but a charmer. (Picture book. 4-6)
