The Mystery Hat - Children's Book #Review & #Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 8/9 #TheMysteryHat
The Mystery Hat is a great children's book write by Danish animator duo Rune Brandt Bennicke and Jakob Hjort Jensen. Mr. Jensen also illustrated the book! Recommended for children ages three to six. I can't say much more about it then what's below. The imaginations of the crow, pig and beaver of where the hat came from or who it belonged to are awesome.
Crow, Pig and Beaver are taking a nice stroll in the woods when they come across a red hat sitting in a puddle. Whose hat is it? What mysterious circumstances could have brought it to this very puddle? Crow thinks that Bear lost the hat when he fell into a giant hole. Perhaps Bear is holding his breath underground, waiting to be saved! Beaver thinks he’s got a better idea. Maybe Turtle, who was wearing the hat, was snatched up and made into yummy turtle soup by a crazed snowman! Can Pig come up with a logical explanation so that the friends can be rid of all these hogwash ideas?
Imaginations run wild in this hilarious picture book from Rune Brandt Bennicke and Jakob Hjort Jensen. The Mystery Hat is sure to get a chuckle from all during this last leg of winter and would be a great addition to any child’s bookshelf!
