The Lovereading4Kids comment
A party invitation is at the centre of this highly entertaining and amusing story. It states that guests must bring a hat, but it appears that there are more entry requirements too, and as the story goes on they become increasingly absurd. Kate Hindley is given some truly wonderful scenes to illustrate and rises to the challenge superbly. Characters featured include a monocle-sporting badger and elephant forced into a tutu. There’s lots to look at on every spread and the surprise ending will send everyone back to the beginning to check for details that might have been missed. Great fun! ~ Andrea Reece
You Must Bring a Hat by Simon Philip
The only rule for attending this party is ...you MUST bring a hat. But what if you don't own a hat? Will bringing a monkey wearing a hat be enough? Find out in this tale that builds to a gloriously surreal and hilarious ending.
'This glorious cumulative story sees the requirements for entry growing ever more stringent - and the list of party-goers ever longer. It builds to a superb and wholly unexpected ending which will delight young readers. Gloriously illustrated, with an immense amount of careful detail which mustn't be missed. Wonderful!' Parents in Touch
'Colourful, fun and easy to follow, young kids will love having a look through the illustrations while you read them the book in bed.' Mummy Pages
