Power of books! Melisande
Melisande--E Nesbit's delightful fairy tale illustrated by PJ Lynch. Melisande is a princess cursed to baldness by an evil fairy. A good fairy comes along to grant her a wish, and Melisande responds "I wish I had golden hair a yard long, and that it would grow an inch every day, and grow twice as fast every time it was cut." Her wish leads to all sorts of problems with outrageously exponentially growing hair.
