Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Sweetness and sincerity distinguish this outwardly unassuming debut collaboration by Swedish illustrators Olof ( Olson's Meat Pies ) and Lena Landstrom. In Fisher's spare but telling translation, the eponymous protagonist is thrilled with his new red-and-green baseball cap. Will particularly appreciates his toque's substantial sun visor: "A visor is really practical. And good looking!" enthuses the boy, admiring his reflection in a barbershop window. Unfortunately, a sudden storm drenches the cap, making its visor droop. The youngster races home, where his mother does her best to make repairs. Will's a city-dweller--blocky, neutral backdrops indicate brick buildings and sidewalks; uncomplicated human figures are outlined and brightly colored to stand out against the prevalent beiges and grays. Because of the subtlety of illustrations and text, it's possible that sympathetic adults, more than kids, will be won over by Will and his guileless ways. Nevertheless, readers are encouraged to browse through this quietly beguiling title. Ages 3-7.

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 1-- This lackluster book has one redeeming quality: very little text. Centered on a cap that gets ruined in the rain, the story can't be saved even when the mother steps in to make everything better. Unlike Everitt's colorful and charming Mean Soup (HBJ, 1992), in which another mother comes along to set things to rights, Landstrom's story falls apart in its cartoon, dated illustrations and a boring narrative. The total lack of character due to lifeless illustrations and a weak story line make this a poor choice for any collection. --Denise Furgione, Atlantic County Library, Mays Landing, NJ

Illustrations are wonderful. Story is cute, funny, sad, touching. Little wording but leaves opportunity to discuss what's happening on each page and how you feel about what's happening. I love it!
