Because this isn't just any old hat. It can also be a toy for a dog, a hiding-place for a mouse, a frisbee for some children and a nest for some birds. Surely poor Rosie will never find her hat again . . . or will she?
Julia Donaldson has owned several hats over the years, including a special straw one she used to wear while busking. She is the author of many bestselling picture books, including the modern classic, THE GRUFFALO (0 333 71093 2) and its sensationally successful sequel, THE GRUFFALO'S CHILD (1 405 02045 8). Julia's other writing credits include plays and songs, and her drama and storytelling sessions are hugely popular.
Anna Currey often wore a hat while working on the illustrations for this book, as she sketched much of it outdoors on a windy hill in Ireland. Anna's many successful picture books include I FORGOT TO SAY I LOVE YOU by Miriam Moss (0 333 97233 3) and THE MACMILLAN TREASURY OF NURSERY RHYMES AND POEMS (0 333 74165 X), as well as her previous collaboration with Julia Donaldson, ONE TED FALLS OUT OF BED (0 333 94782 7), publishing in paperback in August 2005.
This is a great story with lovely engaging pictures. My son loves the fact Rosie becomes a firefighter. Highly recommended.Published on 10 Nov 2011 by Kez
My daughter likes this book. She loves the pictures on it and she likes me reading it to her. She particularly likes the dog pictures and tries to discover the dog in all pages.Published on 28 April 2011 by Connie
I am sorry, but this book is dreadful. I am into books, as is my daughter. I am happy for her to select any of her books for me to read, but not this one! Read morePublished on 25 April 2011 by Milly
Not at all the usual standard for this author - no rhymes, which my grandchildren love and which have certainly helped them to read. Read morePublished on 5 Sep 2010 by Nandel
I'm a bit disapointed with it. We have almost all of her others and I'd say this is the weakest. Shame because the story could be brilliant!!Published on 8 Feb 2008 by Marie Allen
