Hubert’s Hair-Raising Adventure by Bill Peet features full-color illustrations by the author. This book is included in our Kindergarten Read-Aloud Set.
Hubert’s Hair-Raising Adventure is a hilarious rhyming story about Hubert the lion and his luxurious mane. When he loses his hair in an accident, Hubert tries to hide from his friends, but Mrs. Hornbill tells everyone that Hubert has lost his mane. Hubert’s friends come and try to help him by providing a concoction of crocodile tears. Hubert rubs the tears on his head and he and his friends wait and wait and wait. At last, Hubert’s hair begins to grow, and grow, and grow. It grows so much that it tangles up all the animals! Bill Peet’s poetic tale of friendship and his colorful illustrations will delight young readers as they listen to the story of the animals and their hilarious antics.
