Billy Tartle in Say Cheese!
Michael Townsend’s debut book takes the ritual known to all kids who take classroom pictures. Every kid of a certain unique nature would love to leave an imprint on their pictures.
How can Billy Tartle make his class picture super-cool? How about a cool haircut—a Mohawk with big spikes! And it must be bright-bright yellow, no pink, no green—well some kinda cool color! Billy’s mom just wants him to get a regular old haircut, look handsome, and smile nice—sooo bo-ring! Will Billy be able to outwit her and kindly Barber Ken?
