Millie's Marvellous Hat by Satoshi Kitamura

Kitamura, Satoshi. Millie’s Marvellous Hat. Andersen Press, 2009. $16.95. Millie passes a hat shop on her way home from school. She goes in and tries on an expensive hat and then asks the clerk for a hat that costs nothing. The clerk goes to the back of the shop and brings back a hat box. He places an imaginary hat on Millie’s head and she pays him imaginary money. As she continues to walk home her hat morphs with her imagination from a peacock to cakes to flowers, etc. Millie notices that everyone has a hat that matches their personality. The book first published in England and the illustrations definitely have a charming British flair. A fun book for the imagination. EL-ADVISABLE. Samantha, Public Librarian.
