That's My Hat!
by Anouck Boisrobert
Age Range: 6-8
Here’s an amazing pop-up-city full of surprises. By drawing a half circle and a straight line the narrator creates their very own hat, but a sudden gust of wind takes it off and soon it has disappeared. Now a cheeky monkey has stolen the blue hat and it's up to the reader to find them.
That’s My Hat! is a hide-and-seek world full of amusing characters and incredible pop-ups by French author and illustrator, Anouck Boisrobert and Louis Rigaud. Both sophisticated and intricate, with a palette of bold primary colours it shows the cheeky monkey as he flits from page to page finding ingenious places to hide – from the park to the bakery, from the greengrocer to the library.
The use of white space helps to highlight the three dimensional pop-up pages of these busy illustrations as they jump out from the page. City life is depicted as a large pop-up traffic jam with multi-coloured rectangles, a department store or even a pop-up zoo.
This is a gorgeous book and perfect for exploration by a young reader.
