Emily's teacher has said that the girl with the longest hair will be the princess in the school play. So when Emily blows out the candles on her sixth birthday cake and makes a wish, she wishes for the longest hair in the world. Day by day, Emily's hair grows. And grows. And grows. Of course she gets to play the princess, but that doesn't mean her hair stops growing. For the rest of the year, it takes up more and more of Emily's life. What will she wish for on her seventh birthday? Award-winning author Lois Duncan, who has written over 40 books for children and young adults, has created a wonderful modern fairy tale. True to form, it mixes one of life's lessons into a story that sparkles with fantasy and imagination.

"Christina Moore's light-hearted and spirited narration captures the whimsy of Duncan's outrageously fanciful story. Emily gets the fun rolling when she blows out the candles on her sixth birthday cake--she wishes for the longest hair in the world, so she can be the princess in the school play. Moore keeps the story moving with careful pacing that smoothly ranges from fast to slow, staccato to fluid, or frantic to peaceful. Her dramatization of Emily and her parents demonstrates her understanding of how families with young children work together to solve problems. R.M. (c) AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine"
