The Elf's Hat
by Brigitte Weninger, illustrated by John A. Rowe
Preschool-Grade 1 30 pages North South Books February 2000 Paperback    

The Elfs Hat is a delightful holiday story about a hat with plenty of room for all until, that is, a tiny little flea comes along and shakes things up. Beautifully adapted by Brigitte Weninger with hilarious illustrations by John A. Rowe, this classic Ukrainian story (translated by J. Alison James), will thrill children of all ages at Christmastime.

The story centers on an elf out walking in the woods. He loses his hat, and a host of other woodland creatures decide to make their home in the fuzzy, warm hat, until a teeny, tiny flea comes along and moves them all out - quick! Its a simply tale, told in a lyrical style with great visuals, and will have kids smiling from little elf ear to ear.

The Elfs Hat is an adorable holiday treat.
