"Millie's Marvelous Hat" is a delightful fable about a girl who wants a hat with fancy feathers that she finds she cannot afford. Fortunately she is served by a thoughtful and imaginative hat salesman who gives her exactly the hat she can afford, which is an imaginary hat. The wonderful thing that Millie finds about her marvelous hat is that it changes continually to suit her mood. She has a peacock hat, a flower hat, a fountain hat, a cake hat, and countless more. She finds that everyone has imaginary hats they are wearing all the time. She even helps some mystical hat intervention when she has the birds and fish from her park hat leap onto the empty murky pond hat she sees an old lady wearing, leaving the grim-faced old lady with a rusty smile. Millie is thoroughly delighted with her marvelous hat. She can't wait to share it with her parents! When her mother says she wishes she had one too, Millie tells her, "But you do have one. You only have to imagine it!" Author/illustrator Satosha Kitamura's charming and whimsical paintings in lovely pastel tones embellish the evolution of the marvelous hat of Millie. Recommended for children age 5 and up.
