MISS HUNNICUTT’S HAT by Jeff Brumbeau
CHILDREN'S
Released: March 1, 2003

"Though the hats with live adornment have a certain amount of appeal, the overly long, somewhat pedantic story fails to convey in a meaningful way the intended message of respecting individual style, and the story's attempts at humor never achieve a satisfying fit. (Picture book. 5-8)"
