The Princess with the Long Hair

Golden Paintbrush 2000
Book of the Month April 2000

In a small, poor country lives a princess with very long hair. She wants to cut it all off.
But her dad tells her: ‘Hair is a woman’s most precious jewel. The more the better!’
Her hair grows so long that a strong man has to carry it in two suitcases. And then kings and emperors come flocking in from all over the world…

‘A gentle story in which […] that breaks through old patterns. […] The illustrations are lovely, warm and subtle.’ –
