Rosie's Hat isn't just any old hat. When a gust of wind sweeps it off her head, it goes off on a whole hatful of adventures! It becomes a toy for a dog, a hiding-place for a mouse, a frisbee for some children and even a nest for some birds. Surely poor Rosie will never find her hat again . . . or will she? This satisfyingly circular tale from Julia Donaldson, the author of The Gruffalo, is packed with irresistible sound effects, making it perfect for children to join in with - and Anna Currey's beautiful watercolour illustrations perfectly capture the warmth and fun of the story. From the creators of One Ted Falls Out of Bed : 'Another little miracle from Julia Donaldson.' - The Bookseller

5 stars
This is a lovely rhyming story about a little girl who loses her hat. Who knew there were so many roles a hat could play?
Ultimately she finds her hat but, by this time, is an adult performing a rescue. It encourages children to keep searching and never give up. It also helps them to aspire to jobs that serve the community - in this case the fire service.
