Jennie's favorite aunt is sending her a new hat, and Jennie is sure it will be beautiful. But when the box arrives, the hat inside is very plain. She had imagined a wonderful hat with big colorful flowers and even tries to make her own hat from a straw basket!
Jennie is almost ready to give up on her dream when she receives a fanciful surprise from some very special friends. Ezra Jack Keats's timelessly charming illustrations will leave readers wishing for a dream hat of their own.
"Recalling a time not so long ago when ladies wore hats, the transformation of Jennie's hat still has relevancy today. The child who is determined to find a way to beautify the drab will be inspired by Jennie's tenacity." -- Children's Literature
"In Ezra Jack Keats's mixed-media collage conveys the miraculous transformation of Jennie's Hat (1966), from a plain, broad-brimmed number to something stylish, with a bit of help from her feathered friends." -- Publisher's Weekly
