Format: Hardcover
Douglas the wonderful hugging bear is back and he is wearing a brand new hat. Well, sort of. Douglas' dad makes him his very own woolly red hat. Douglas loves it and trudges off to show his friends the sheep. He shows them how he can turn flips and cartwheels in his new fuzzy red hat. He whoops again and again, until he realizes his beautiful new wooly red hat that his dad made especially for him has come unraveled. Yikes! Oh no, what is Douglas to do? He worries. Douglas has to figure out a way to either fix the hat or tell his dad.

Young readers will fall in love with Douglas all over again. The funny sheep are back with their silly antics. And at the back of the book are the funniest types of hats you will ever see. Parents, teachers and homeschoolers will love turning the pages together to see how Douglas gets himself out of this hilarious conundrum.
