Library Media Connection Online - Annette B. Thibodeaux, Educational Reviewer, Metairie, Louisiana

"This is a highly imaginative story that will tickle the funny bones of young readers. It is filled with pages of colorful illustrations that graphically tell this humorous hairy story." - Library Media Connection Online

Booklist - Daniel Kraus

"As a tale of personal vanity that comes at a price, it’s a nicely soft-edged one that makes a case without anyone, including Clara, coming off as unsympathetic. Poole’s loopy depiction of the hair is the highlight, as it spreads across the pages like a spilled bowl of SpaghettiOs." - Booklist

San Francisco Book Review - Avery, Age 10

"You can’t help but want to pick up Clara’s Crazy Curls because the cover is so bright and Clara is so darn cute! I instantly fell in love with this book because the story rhymed. Rhymes always makes reading more fun and this will make kids really want to read this book. . . .If you like Pinkalicious you will find Clara just as cute. Each page is so bright and eye catching and every page is filled with drawings that easily tell the story without the words and makes it a perfect book for kids who can’t read yet." - San Francisco Book Review

School Library Journal - Blair Christolon, Prince William Public Library System, Manassas, VA

"Poole sets up this humorous story using cartoonlike illustrations of characters with identical circle eyes and simple grins. Her artwork excels as she tickles readers' imaginations with drawings of golden-orange curls completely flowing to the edges of the pages as Clara's hair grows and grows." - School Library Journal

Helen Poole

As a child, Helen Poole was fascinated by childrens books. She enjoyed writing stories and rhymes that she could illustrate. This fascination has lead to a full-time career. Helen graduated from the University of Central Lancashire, where she discovered working digitally and never looked back. Since graduating, her versatility has allowed her to work as a graphic and product designer, as well as an illustrator. She has worked on everything from toys and games to greeting cards and pet products. And lets not forget childrens books! Helen works much better when drinking large amounts of herbal tea and singing loudly to an extremely eclectic music collection (thankfully she works alone).
