“Purple Hair? I Don’t Care! is the [cumulatively rhyming] story of Mrs. Della Ragon’s visit to Dr. Gray. The doctor tells Della that she is going to have a baby – but he must warn her about a few things. First of all, the baby may have purple hair. To this Della responds, “I don’t care! I’ll love my little baby anyway.” Dr. Gray proceeds to make other outrageous predictions about Della’s baby, but always her response is the same. The reader has the impression that she is in the doctor’s waiting room overhearing this exchange with the other obviously concerned patients. A surprise ending will please young readers.”
