Whose Hat?

Margaret Miller. Greenwillow Books, $16 (40pp) ISBN 978-0-688-06906-3

The concept behind this book is almost identical to that of last year's Whose Hat Is That? (Clarion), but this one is in glossy, full color. Nine different hats are worn by adults in situations with which the hats are identified, and by children who like to pretend. Hats for a chef, fire fighter, nurse and police officer reside next to not-so-career-oriented toppershats for a witch, a magician and a pirate. There is a spirit of playfulness and fun to the pictureseven the adults aren't entirely serious about putting in a hard day's work in this well-designed volume. Ages 3-up. (March)
