Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The red hat worn by the child in Red Sled (2011) takes a more prominent role in this sequel. Like its predecessor, this picture book is almost wordless but seldom silent. The action begins after the child washes the hat and hangs it on a clothesline to dry. A bear cub yanks it down and runs off with it, pursued by bunnies. A raccoon holds up the hat triumphantly (“Hiii-ya!”) and takes off at full gallop. Meanwhile, the knitted hat begins to unravel. A mouse sees the tassel end (“Wow-za”) and grabs it (“Yoo-ha!”) before a yank of the yarn sweeps him off his feet (“Whoa”). Without a narrative text, viewers may occasionally puzzle over matters such as the disappearance of the bear cub for several pages. While the pencil-and-watercolor illustrations show a fine color sense, particularly in the idyllic settings, young children will be drawn to the animals’ headlong action, expressive body language, and amusing facial expressions. An engaging picture-book ­adventure. Preschool. --Carolyn Phelan

Review

* “One red hat plus a troop of enthusiastic animals equals trouble! Young fans will love reading and rereading this nearly wordless continuation of the adventure of the hat from Judge’s marvelous winter tale, Red Sled…. The watercolor-and-pencil illustrations are deceptively simple and strike the perfect chord of energy and emotion that is the definition of a curious and accidentally naughty preschooler. Crossing fingers for more seasonal “red” tales.” (Kirkus Reviews, February 1, 2013, *STARRED REVIEW)

“In this warm-weather companion to 2011’s Red Sled, a boy’s pointy hat is as irresistible to the local wildlife as his sled was in the previous book. As in that story, the only text is the occasional sound effect—the “Fffwwup” of a hat being grabbed off the clothesline, or the “shwoop” of a rabbit and mouse holding onto the rapidly unraveling hat for dear life as a bear runs off with it…the laughs are on target, as is the “no harm done” resolution." (Publishers Weekly, January 14, 2013)

"The red hat worn by the child in Red Sled (2011) takes a more prominent role in the sequel. Like its predecessor, this picture book is almost wordless but seldom silent….

An engaging picture-book adventure." (Booklist, March 1, 2013)

“In this almost wordless companion to Red Sled (S & S, 2011), forest animals notice a knit cap hung on a clothesline to dry as a child goes inside his home…. The attractive pencil and watercolor artwork is framed, making good use of a plain background of color, such as lush greens or white, which allows the details to stand out. The author uses various visual perspectives to show the animals’ playful antics…. Enjoyable enough for repeated readings.” (School Library Journal, February 2013)

With one exclamation per page, a bear and his forest animal friends "Wow-za" "Shwooop" and "Doot-do-doo" through the onomatopoeic story, going on a wild adventure with a knitted red hat they find out on a clothesline. Unraveling their way through the forest, the boy finally gets his tangled yarn back and he re-knits it into little hats for everyone. This is a sequel to Red Sled. Pair this with Knitty Kitty by David Elliot, Extra Yarn by Mac Barnett or Annie Hoot and the Knitting Extravaganza by Holly Clifton-Brown for a cozy storytime.

This story is so beautifully illustrated with fun simple sounds with each illustration. Read to my 17 month old granddaughter, this promoted conversation about what the animals were doing and ended with playing with hats. A fun book to add to the collection for preschoolers. I like this one best, but would also recommend Red Sled by the same author.

My children love to see the antics of the animals in the book, but that is probably the only reason I appreciate this book. I feel it is both lacking and pushy in story line, trying to keep up with Red Sled.

My granddaughter loved Red Sled two years ago and had to read and re read it the entire Christmas visit. I am hoping this book will get the same reaction. I love it and think the ending is perfection.

I think I liked Red Sled better by the author, but Red Hat didn't disappoint me. The wordless book makes storytelling interesting with my grandchildren, and they liked both books.

I bought this because my daughter loves the other book called Red Sled. This one is similar. what a great adventure with very few words. Pictures are cute too.

I enjoyed this book as you can "create the storyline". Bought this book as a gift and haven't read it with him yet, but am sure to in the near future.
