KIRKUS REVIEW

A puzzling query put by a kind old farmer to a squirrel who saw ""a fat round brown bird in the sky,"" a mouse, who saw ""a big round brown mousehole in the grass"", a fly, who saw, ""a flat round brown hill in a tree,"" and eventually to a bird. ""No"", said the Bird, ""I saw this nice round brown nest, but no hat"". Of course an egg is hatching in the ""nest"" and the benevolent farmer contents himself with a new round brown bat. Fritz Siebel's exuberant childlike depiction in four colors will amuse the young onlooker who from the beginning is in on the secret of the missing hat.
