You must read Happy Birthday, Madame Chapeau by Andrea Beaty and David Roberts if you haven't yet! It's such a wonderful book. You are gonna LOVE it! Whitalics here, we're tag teaming it today because we both love this book so much and guess what? It happens to fit perfectly with the birthday week theme. Yay!
Madame Chapeau is truly the most endearing hat maker you'll ever meet. Yes, she's kind and artistic and totally sweet. And the hats in the book-- so wonderful!! (Which of course means the art in this book is fantastic!)
What's your favorite hat Robyn?
Well- I have this obsession with blue... and I couldn't resist all those tassels. So yeah, it was the blue sombrero.
Of course, the blue one, I can't believe I didn't predict that! I think I like the pink one with the strips of ribbon and the pom-pom pin the best..it's tough to narrow it down though! There's even hats for pets! the dog bone hat is pretty great, you have to admit!!
I had a feeling you'd have something to say about the dog bones. Those pom-poms on the cat hat... to DIE FOR!
Back to Madame Chapeau, though, sorry I'm easily distracted. Besides her incredible talent, she's also very shy and lonely. But, you'll just adore the adventure that unfolds on her birthday. Adore is right! Cuteness is a major fan of this book-- its one of those read it again immediately after you've read it kind of books in our house.
-Happy reading and happy birthday-ing!
