The Hat Hardcover – September 29, 1997
Enhance your purchase
When Lisa's woolen stocking flies off the clothesline, Hedgie finds it and pokes his nose in. He tries to pull it out, but the stocking gets stuck on his prickles -- and the fun begins.
A mother hen comes by, then a noisy goose, a talkative barn cat, a playful farm dog, a mama pig and her piglets, and a pony. They all laugh at Hedgie, especially when he pretends he's wearing a new hat. But in the end, it is clever Hedgie who has the last laugh.
And where is Lisa when all of this is going on? She's in Jan Brett's signature borders, getting ready for winter, until she realizes her stocking is missing and she enters the story to look for it.
Luminous paintings of a Scandinavian farm and the forest around it are bathed in northern light, as the snow begins to fall and the adventure unfolds.

This magnificently illustrated companion book to artist (and hedgehog owner) Jan Brett's classic The Mitten was the winner of the prestigious 1998 Boston Globe-Horn Book Award. Young readers can spend hours with this one short book, poring over the pleasing, spirited details of Brett's trademark picture borders. Throughout, Lisa can be seen in these artful frames, making preparations for the cold Scandinavian winter, never realizing that her clothesline is becoming more line than clothes. If it were possible to wrap oneself up in these warm, cozy illustrations, readers would be set for the winter. (Ages 4 to 8) --Emilie Coulter

In my opinion, the book isn’t an “easy reader” for a beginning reader. The story line keeps their full attention.

The real gem is more than just the words - it’s the illustrations. So much to see on each page. There is the main picture in the middle, then there are the pictures along the sides that show what the little girl, Lisa, is up to and what animal comes next. Then there are the pegs along the top and one by one the clothes disappear as you go along. My children (ages 2-9) all enjoy it!
Beautiful little book with lovely illustrations. Something that could be kept and put out as Christmas "decor /nostalgia" even after the little ones grow up. The book is very sturdy with lots of thick board pages. The only negative was that it was quite small/tricky for adult hands to hold and read with a baby wanting to get in on the fun. From a little kid perspective, though, it's a perfect size to hold, look at or carry around. Easily fits in a tote or large pocket.
