Format: Paperback
Love, love, love this book. My daughter is 2 and has a very short attention span. She knows within about 2 seconds what books she likes and which she doesn't. She adored this book immediately. I have to confess this slightly surprised me as there's nothing immediately 'grabbing' about it - but the gentle story, quirky detail and absorbing pictures repay endless re-readings. We spend ages on the peacock page and the park page, comparing the various hats, and find something new each time. What could be a slightly clunky theme is delicately and cleverly embroidered, and we talk about Millie's rabbit hat at bedtime. Thoroughly recommended.

Bought this for my 2 yr old called Millie and she loves it! We've read it most nights since Christmas, and she also enjoys looking at the pictures on her own.

Very entertaining. Bought for my Grandson who likes 3 books every bed time; so we need to have something that appeals to the reader as well as to him.

I picked this up by chance in the library and discovered quickly that it's a bit of a gem. The author's Angry Arthur is also fantastic (for discussing keeping your temper), and both take great leaps of imagination to show children how their minds and dreams can make amazing things happen.

Millie can't afford the hat she wants in the shop, so the kind shopworker offers her an imaginary hat that can take on any shape, size and colour.

All she has to do is imagine it. And what an imagination Millie has! My favourite is the cake hat, but my son is riveted by all the hats Millie creates with her mind, for her and others.

Great unique style of drawing and a wonderful introduction to the fun world of imagination and creating pictures with your mind.
