Millie's Marvelous Hat
By Satoshi Kitamura
Andersen Press USA, 2009. Unpaged. Picture book.
When the hat that Millie wants to purchase is much too expensive, the store owner gives her a wonderful idea--she should imagine a hat! Once she begins, she comes up with the most outlandish and beautiful hats she can dream up. Hats piled high with feathers, cakes, and even miniature animals appear on her head as she walks through town. Millie notices that everyone has a special hat of their own and that all it takes is a little imagination.
This is a darling book that will delight children with its colorful, creative illustrations and cute story. The most entertaining part of the book is to see all the funny hats people have on their heads--children will love seeing an entire dinosaur upon some of the characters' heads! This is a wonderful book about using your imagination to the fullest.
