Oh, poor Alice, all those lovely curls spoiled. Then they wouldn't be long in growing back, hopefully. Cute story - very well written - Colin
This is a very well-told story with a wonderful message. You have some outstanding similes as well.

I love this story! Maybe because I had to have hanks of gummy hair cut out as a kid. Wonderful message, super writing.
