About the story

In 1976, Robert Munsch was teaching at a nursery school and Aaron was in his class. Aaron always had messy hair that was very hard to comb, and he came to school dressed in a suit and tie. Lots of kids in nursery school have messy hair, but they do not have messy hair AND wear a suit and tie! Munsch made up a story for Aaron where his hair ran away.

Fifteen years later Munsch tracked Aaron down. He was living in Toronto and was the leader of a rock band. His hair was even messier than when he was a little kid! And messy-haired Aaron and his band played music at the Aaron's Hair book launch.
