About the BookAlex wants his hair to be just like his best friend Arie's. Arie promises to teach him the secret trick for turning black hair to red... but what kind of a trick is it?
What is the secret behind Arie's red hair?
Alex is dying to know why Arie's hair is so red. So he asks him if there if there is a secret to it all, or better yet, something he can do to turn his own black hair red?
Soon he's following Arie's good advice and consuming daily doses of tomatoes and ketchup. But when he finds himself drinking hot sauce to, you know, set the colour, Alex starts to suspect that he's being played -- and concocts a little plan to turn the tables on Arie's trick, by tempting him with his own recipe for turning red hair black!
Based on a boy named Arie from Montreal, whom Robert Munsch met while on a storytelling tour, Seeing Red celebrates the spirit of good-natured pranks with some over-the-top antics and hilarious imagery, while providing a gentle lesson about accepting who you are and what you've been given.

"[Readers] will not be disappointed . . . Munsch's voice can be heard throughout the text with outlandish exclamations and hilarity ensuing in the plot . . . Michael Martchenko's exaggerated illustrations pair well with Munsch's text." -- Canadian Materials
"Robert Munsch's new offering, Seeing Red... is about the hilarious -- and sometimes painful -- lengths that two boys go to in order to change the colour of their hair." - Halifax Chronicle-Herald
"Troubles begin when two boys covet each other's hair colour in Seeing Red... In the end, the two friends learn the importance of just being themselves, while finding common ground in the process." -- Waterloo Region Record
