Harbet noticed a group of trend-setting animals wearing fruit hats. He quickly donned the new topper, but soon discovered that hat was now old too! Trying to stay ahead in the world of fashion is hard work!
He bought Top Hat Magazine to research the trends. He camped outside of the hat shop so he could have first pick of the caps. His hat selections were still seen as old and out-dated. Will Harbet ever find a way out of the hat havoc?
I absolutely adore this book! Gravett's story is full of humor and heart. Young and old alike will relate to Harbet's struggle of keeping up appearances in a fashion-frenzied world.
Gravett's illustrations are gorgeous. The characters she has created are truly memorable. Harbet couldn't be any more adorable. He actually reminds me of my Chiweenie, Penny, who has a severe overbite.
I love how much detail is contained on every page. From the tiniest trim on a hat, to the actual articles in the Top Hat Magazine, Gravett shows a mastery of the drawing craft.
This is a wonderful book for readers of all ages. The ending really packs a positive punch and serves as a great reminder to adults as well.
