Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

A gently comic tale about R. R. Pottle the Third, a man who dreams of the perfect wife and finds her. A Reading Rainbow selection. Ages 4-8.
Copyright 1987 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 3 A fun-filled story of the slightly eccentric Pottle clan, and particularly of R. R. Pottle the Third, who loved hats. He consoles a rather lonely heart by wearing three hats at once. On a visit to a hat store he finds the perfect wife, wearing, of course, the perfect hat. There is also a nice twist at the end, concerning R. R. Pottle the Fourth's obsession. Lobel's depiction of the Pottles is imaginative and clever. The softly colored watercolors show Pottle using a fishing pole to choose his day's hat from his bed and reveal the Pottle mansion to be a melange of canes and umbrellas (his parents' loves). Even better, though, is the richness and rhythm of the language: "WHAT HATS! There were fezzes and face veils, tiaras and tam-o'-shanters." Young readers may have to sound out some words but will soon enjoy rolling them off their tongue. A nice way to introduce youngsters to the riches to be found in the English language.

A funny little man who loves hats cheers himself up by wearing three at a time! This is a great book for teaching primary graders about permutations and probability theory.

This delightful tale is not primarily a math book. It is a plea for toleration and sympathetic understanding of people who appear different and who offend our sense of propriety. While my child was growing up, we watched Reading Rainbow together. And almost every book on the show was worth buying and treasuring. This story needs to be read and savored for its own sake and for (the late) Arnold Lobel's whimsical art work.

I used the book for teaching multiplication facts by 3. The kids enjoyed the book and it is cute and I love the illustrations.
