Two friends. One wish.

Mai and Rose are best friends but they're not two peas in a pod.

Mai has dark hair that is curly and whirly and never stays put. Why couldn't she have perfect hair just like her best friend Rose?

Rose has blonde hair, as straight as a ruler, which slips and slides whenever she tries to put it in a pony tail. Why couldn't she have perfect hair just like her best friend Mai?

When a magical coconut grants each girl their wish, and they get the hair they've always dreamt of, the friends are overjoyed. However, they soon learn that perfect hair is not everything it's cracked up to be.

In fact, their hair was pretty magical and perfect the way it was before...

A joyful and fun story about celebrating differences and loving yourself from head to toe!

'The Mega Magic Hair Swap is all about accepting, loving and celebrating curly hair. The book certainly moved me. As the mother of mixed heritage seven year old twin daughters, I've battled hard to boost the self love of my girls. Rochelle is clearly passionate about educating kids when they're young to try to build their self-esteem and sense of self.' - Grazia

This book was an instant hit with my two daughters. They loved the cute illustrations and could relate to the two characters in the story who wanted to swap hair! The message to be proud of who you are is really positive and is conveyed brilliantly in the story. The book sets itself up to be part of a series as there's a magical coconut that grants wishes. My children will definitely be keen to find out what Mai wishes for next!

This book was an immediate success with my daughter - she was taken by the cover and keen to read the story straight away. She very interested in hairstyles so the story of two friends who want each other's hair was perfect for her. The two friends in the book soon realise that the grass isn't always greener so a good message about appreciating what you have everyone being different but equally beautiful.

I was really looking forward to reading this book with my daughter. I had seen the book promoted on this morning, and it sounded great, and Rochelle Humes is a great role model for girls. I especially was excited to share it with mt daughter, as it is a very relatable story. I have a mixed race daughter with beautiful curly hair. When her hair is wet in the bath it is very long, down to her bum, but when its dry this isn't the case. So she is always moaning about wanting her hair long, like most of her friends. We are always saying her hair is amazing. This story had a great message, as the girls swap hair and realise they prefer their own hair. I love that it tells little girls, be you, your hair is special and what makes you you. I have never come across a book like this before. The illustrations were great, and my daughter could read it on her own too. It is a fab book to read but even better if you had a little girl that wasn't happy with how her hair is. I think Rochelle should do another one, but for boys

My 3 year old loves this story. Book clearly managed to grab her attention, she kept her concentration through out and was clearly interested as she said right at the end “they happy now”. She also has curly whirly hair so this is now her favourite words. Would definitely recommend this story its fun

Sweet book about best friends that have very different types of hair but want the same hair as each other. Then there is a magical hair swap.
Story gives a nice message that it is good to be different and the differences make us unique.

Great illustrations that are brightly coloured and fit the story well. 

Enjoyed by both children
