The Lovereading4Kids comment
When Granny Elsie’s precious hat gets torn Clara button has a very clever idea! To fix it, she suggests a magical hat day. With her mother and brother, Clara sets off for the Victoria & Albert Museum where she can find everything she needs to make the hat as good as new. In a wonderful fantasy adventure that follows, the Victoria & Albert Museum provides a background as a treasure trove of beautiful things which Emily Sutton brings to life in her glorious and entertaining illustrations.

Clara Button and the Magical Hat Day by Amy de la Haye
Clara Button loves hats and when her older brother Ollie breaks her favourite, Mum takes them on a special hat day out. While visiting the Victoria and Albert Museum, Clara gets lost and embarks on an exciting journey of discovery. Meanwhile, Ollie is having adventures of his own, with swords and tigers! This is an absolutely charming picture book full of hats of the most colourful kind. This debut picture book sees the arrival of two exciting talents in the world of picture books; the illustrator Emily Sutton and author Amy de la Haye.
'A beautifully illustrated, imaginative story' - Jacqueline Wilson
'Emily Sutton’s illustrations are a delight and the V&A certainly provides many opportunities for exotic adventures for Clara the hat-lover.' - The Spectator
