The Mystery Hat Book Review

Wait till you see how cute this book is!! The Mystery Hat written by Rune Brandt Bennicke and Jakob Hjort Jensen, illustrated by Jakob Hjort Jensen. I’m hoping to see many more children’s stories from this duo!  I love that I can provide you a YouTube video that will show you just how unique this book is!

Crow, Pig, and Beaver are taking a nice stroll in the woods when they come across a red hat sitting in a puddle. Whose hat is it? What mysterious circumstances could have brought it to this very puddle? Crow thinks that Bear lost the hat when he fell into a giant hole. Perhaps Bear is holding his breath underground, waiting to be saved! Beaver thinks he’s got a better idea. Maybe Turtle, who was wearing the hat, was snatched up and made into yummy turtle soup by a crazed snowman! Can Pig come up with a logical explanation so that the friends can be rid of all these hogwash ideas?

Such a cute book and absolutely perfect for kids who are tired of winter and snow!! This needs to be on your book shelf! Alice loves this book. It’s so imaginative! Alice laughs at each and every single page!! The Mystery Hat quickly became one of Alice’s top shelf favorite!
