Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2–Hetty starts a hat collection and sets herself a lofty goal: She wasn't sure how many 100 was, but she thought it sounded very important. In her determined hunt for things to put on her head, she creatively improvises with fourteen extraordinary household hats including a fruit bowl and colander. Friends and family hear about her quest and send her exotic hats from around the world. Community workers, a fashion designer, and retirement-home residents all contribute to her collection as well. Children will pore over Dodd's bright, cartoon drawings and enjoy identifying and counting the wide variety of headgear that appears on each page. The 100th entry comes in the form of a letter with instructions on how to make a newspaper hat. Pair this title with Marthe Jocelyn's Hannah's Collections (Dutton, 2000) to inspire young hobbyists.–Linda Ludke, London Public Library, Ontario, Canada

Fun way for a kid to get a concept of what 100 of something is. "Hetty" wants to have a collection of hats so its about her quest for finding so many.
