A series of exuberant read-aloud sound effects perfectly capture the whimsy and joy of a springtime frolic in this companion to Red Sled.
In this almost wordless springtime picture book, an adorable crew of baby animals borrows a familiar-looking red hat (last seen on the head of Red Sled’s unsuspecting protagonist) and embarks on a joy-filled escapade—until all that is left is a long piece of red string! Their playful romp is gorgeously depicted in bold watercolor and complemented by humorous expressions and pitch-perfect sound effects. With a timeless tone and classic characters, Red Hat promises to be an instant favorite.
In this warm-weather companion to 2011 s Red Sled, a boy s pointy hat is as irresistible to the local wildlife as his sled was in the previous book. As in that story, the only text is the occasional sound effect the Fffwwup of a hat being grabbed off the clothesline, or the shwoop of a rabbit and mouse holding onto the rapidly unraveling hat for dear life as a bear runs off with it. While this book doesn t have the crisp, wintertime magic of its predecessor, the laughs are on target, as is the no harm done resolution. Ages 2 5.
