Because this isn’t just any old hat. It can also be a toy for a dog, a hiding-place for a mouse, a frisbee for some children and a nest for some birds. Surely poor Rosie will never find her hat again…or will she?
Anna Currey often wore a hat while working on the illustrations for this book, as she sketched much of it outdoors on a windy hill in Ireland. Anna’s many successful picture books include I FORGOT TO SAY I LOVE YOU by Miriam Moss (0 333 97233 3) and THE MACMILLAN TREASURY OF NURSERY RHYMES AND POEMS (0 333 74165 X), as well as her previous collaboration with Julia Donaldson, ONE TED FALLS OUT OF BED (0 333 94782 7), published in paperback in August 2005.
