Description

“In a seaside town on a cozy little bay,
ships of all kinds often dock for the day.
There a man lives loved by tourists and fishers,
known through the world to do magic with scissors.”

So starts this children’s book debut by author-illustrator Joe Frank.

With bright splashes of vibrant watercolours and jaunty rhyming prose, Frank’s fashionable maritime myth comes alive in 32 pages of seafaring fun.

With his perfectly coiffured pompadour, our protagonist Arthur Garber must set aside his daily dealings providing trims for sunburned tourists and buzzcuts for naval crews when he is met with the challenge of his life: A castaway with wild hair floats ashore hoping to look normal, once more.

“There was simply so much of it, frazzled and frizzy.
Anyone else would have left feeling dizzy.
What followed became a maritime myth.
A castaway saved by a master hairsmith.”

Full of wild hair, tall tales and a joyous surprise, Arthur Garber the Harbour Barber is a fantastic yarn for landlubbers and seafaring folk alike.
