Synopsis by Alice Day
In this episode of the popular Reading Rainbow series, Madam Pompenstance becomes an unusual entrant in a headdress contest when she unwittingly picks up a miniature ship on her head. Lady With the Ship on Her Head by Deborah Nourse Lattimore is read by Marilyn Pasekoff. In other segments related to heads, LeVar Burton is the head news reader who introduces features on the brain, a hair salon, and hats. A group known as "the Greatful Heads" sings "I Ain't Got No Body," and the kid critics review An Enchanted Hair Tale, Moag-Moag, Space Barber, and The Flyaway Pantaloons.
