eBook Review by Mary Sue and John Ulutunu?
What would you do with an enchanted hat? A hat that, randomly changes shape to show function. Would you put it on? Would you see where the hat takes you? That's what David does. A keeper of all things, he happens across a hat that changes his life forever!
David is a collector. Whether a leaf, a rock, baseball cards- anything, he will find a place in his room for it and add to it as days, months and years go by. It's driven his parents into debates, but he refuses to stop. One day he happens upon a hat, stuck in the upper branches of a tree. But it's no ordinary hat. It fluidly changes. One second it's a clown's hat, the next a yellow hard hat. Once in David's clutches, he's sent on adventures that would make any collector's day!
The Enchanted Hat is an enigma. I liked the book, but found two things wrong with hit. First, the cover, to me represented a childish tale. It said: I'm about a little boy who just wants to have fun and wear... well, hats! I also thought it was going to be a picture book. The actual story let me know my 12 1/2 year old could have read it. It's strange, but still very likable.
The second thing I found wrong was, for a children's book, it's very wordy. It's over one hundred pages long, but could easily have been shared around fifty or so. It was in the fine detailing of David's thoughts; they could have been shortened a great deal, making the perfect read.
Other than that, David going from rockstar to constructionist and even a scientist on safari was fun. It's what makes children's books amazing and enjoyable. I do suggest that if you chose this book, give it to your nine, ten year old instead of six or seven year old. There are no photos and a lot of conversations and words anyone younger may not have knowledge of.
Cheers! I'm off to the next read!
