Whose Hat Is That

 

Left a top hat, right four characters: an athlete, a woman in a beach dress, a snowman and Santa Claus. Whose hat is that? Once the choice is made, a funny drawing on the next page provides the answer: of course it’s the snowman’s top hat!

 

Whose Hat Is That? is the first part of a new children’s series conceived and developed by Joukje Akveld. The drawings in each succeeding book will be from the hand of a different famous Dutch illustrator, so very young readers are also introduced to a wide array of work. Master-illustrator Thé Tjong-Khing illustrated this first book: a collection of beautiful costumes (with matching headgear or not).
