KIRKUS REVIEW

Elmo's haircut is an embarrassing disaster. Some sympathetic space monsters happen by and take him to their home at the other end of the solar system to find a better barber, but the result is no improvement. Never mind--best friend Buford isn't in a position to tease: on the first day of school, he too is concealing a silly haircut under a funny hat. Teague tells this space-age tall tale with winning, understated humor; in his vigorous, creatively composed paintings, the bright-green spacemen have pointy topknots just like Elmo's hat and move with a beguilingly sinuous authority. The story's subject, wit, and satirical theme should entertain older children as well as the picture-book age.
