Nigel's having the biggest "hattiest party".... you're invited... but you MUST bring a hat. PS Try not to be late.
Looked everywhere - could not find a hat... other than a hat on a monkey...... surely that will do?
Well security on the door is tight.... and the hat wearing monkey would be allowed in with you as long as.... it was also wearing a monocle
As luck would have it a monocle wearing badger (called Jeff) is happy to lend you his, as long as he can come to the party too......
But security on the door, NOW says the badger can only come in if he plays the piano.......
And so it goes on... with security requiring more and more outlandish things from you and your friends..... but you lose your patience.... and express frustration afterall Nigel's original invite only stressed the need for a hat. "Who's Nigel? This is Felicity's party....." "ah."
Great book, great twist. Very similar in style to the book "If you give a mouse a cookie". We bought it after seeing Tom Hardy read it on Cbeebies Bedtime over Christmas - which is the downside to the book, as I'll never be able to read / deliver it as well as him !! A must for your bookshelf - always makes our near 4 yr old laugh.
