Olive and the Embarrassing Hat by Tor Freeman

Olive's best friend Joe has bought her a special hat - the only problem is Olive doesn't like it and her gang of friends find it very amusing. Olive tries all kinds of excuses to avoid wearing the hat and eventually Joe catches her stuffing it into a bin! Olive feels terrible that she's upset Joe, so she makes a special sign to wear saying, Olive and Joe are best friends .

Reviews

Olive the cat continues to comically navigate the perils of friendship in her third book, following Olive and the Big Secret and Olive and the Bad Mood. This time, Olive's friend Joe the turtle presents her with a knit cap festooned with hearts that reads best friends (Joe has a matching hat, adding to Olive's mortification). I'm not sure it's quite hat weather today, Olive ventures, after buddy Ziggy snorts at the sight of them. Well, it's not really that sort of hat, Joe reassures her. It's more of an everyday hat! After Joe catches Olive trashing the gift, she casts her dignity aside to win back her friend. Freeman tackles a highly relatable quandary-who among us has not known the horror of unwanted knitwear?-while using sly humor and knowing dialogue to keep the story emotionally true yet free of pedagogy Publishers Weekly - USA
