‘We reviewed Tracy Gunaratnam’s last picture book, Hamster Sitter Wanted and we loved that, so we were pretty confident a new one would also be a treat. Not My Hats! is a simple, colourful and melodic offering that gives children plenty of chance to join in with the rhyming. Needless to say, that makes it a great book for story time and for reading out aloud.
As well as having all the fun of rhyming, it’s a story of sharing and discovering how everything is better when you let your friends join in. Alea Marley’s bright and simple illustrative style fits the simple story perfectly.
The books publisher, Maverick, are making something of a speciality of these generously sized paperbacks so keep your eyes open for anything they do because you’re unlikely to be disappointed.’
