Two children plant mysterious seeds (all that’s pictured on the envelope is a blue top hat), and up grows a remarkable flowering vine, out of which emerges an even more remarkable big white bear. On his head is the top hat—a hat that allows him to work all kinds of magic that day. He pulls monkey after monkey from the hat, blows bubbles in amazing shapes, and transforms flowers into spectacular floating sea creatures.
The two children are wide-eyed with wonder – and you will be, too. This is a dazzling debut—a vibrant, welcoming, strikingly original picture book.
"A surreal and wonderful bedtime story"
