Old Hat

Illustrated by: Emily Gravett
For Ages: 4 - 8
From the creator of Wolves, Dogs, Tidy, and the Bear and Hare series and twice-winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal, Emily Gravett comes a fresh, funny, and punchy picture book about the futility of fads and the joy of learning to be yourself.

Harbet had a hat. His Nana had knitted it for him when he was little.

Harbet likes his comfy knitted hat, but the others keep jeering at him—OLD HAT! OLD HAT! No matter what headwear he buys—be it a towering fruit platter hat, an old-boot-on-the-head hat, or a brightly lit traffic cone hat, Harbet cannot keep up with the latest fashions. As soon as he gets a brand new hat it is already…OLD HAT! It seems that Harbet will never fit in. But when one day he decides to go his own way, Harbet discovers just how much more fun it is to stop following others and think for yourself.
