Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-K—Mr. Brown knows that today is a good day for a hat. And he would know, because he has one for every occasion—a wide-brimmed hat for rain, a cozy earflap hat for snow, even a chef's hat for the big Bear County Cook-off! But today, a mischievous rabbit is creating chaos with its magic wand. Each time Mr. Brown opens his front door, something has changed, causing the bear to go back inside to change his hat. Finally, Mr. Brown must leave his house or be late to meet mousy Miss Plum. So he stacks several hats on his head and arrives at Miss Plum's just in time for a surprise birthday party for him! Luckily, his friend has just the right hat for that! This bright and cheerful hat-filled book (don't miss the whimsical endpapers) is similar in tone and structure to Brian Won's Hooray for Hat! and Jory John's Goodnight, Already! The illustrations, created digitally with pencil, crayon, and ink, use a presentational perspective; kids will feel as though they are looking at a theater pantomime through a proscenium. Flat, geometric shapes create backgrounds, and loose-limbed characters stare directly at viewers. VERDICT Although the book fails to pull readers in emotionally and there's no explanation for the pesky rabbit, the repetitive structure, plot-driven narrative, and large, easy-to-read font make this a fun storytime title for toddlers or preschoolers.—Amy Seto Forrester, Denver Public Library

Review

"The story thrives on this repetitive silliness with well-timed page turns...Hodgson's digital illustrations are colorful, zany, and suitably flat, with plump circles and sharp squares delineating a clean and clear-cut art style."
(Kirkus)

"Fuller and Hodgson’s story has a naive, crafts-room look, the unstoppable momentum of a windup toy, and a punch line that’s just right."
(Publishers Weekly)

"The illustrations, created digitally with pencil, crayon, and ink, use a presentational perspective; kids will feel as though they are looking at a theater pantomime through a proscenium. "
(School Library Journal)
