Bedtime Story: The Hat by Jan Brett

Read for: Children's Book Challenge
Synopsis: "In Jan Brett's well-loved book, The Hat, Hedgie the hedgehog discovers the wisdom of the adage "Don't go poking your nose where it doesn't belong" only after curiosity gets this prickly fellow in a pickle. When Lisa's red-and-white woolen stocking blows off the clothesline, Hedgie finds it and sticks his nose inside, only to discover his prickles prevent him from pulling out of it. Soon all the farm animals are coming around to chuckle at silly Hedgie's stocking cap. But in the end, nimble-witted Hedgie gets the last laugh.
Now young fans of this glorious Scandinavian picture book can curl up with the illustrious Hedgie, himself! This fluffy 5-inch fellow, with long, lush, decidedly unprickly fur, sports the very sock--uh, hat--that got him in trouble. A soft body and cheerful smile guarantee many friends for this huggable guy. Packaged with the only available board book version of the award-winning The Hat, this delightful book and sweet plush toy set make a perfect gift any time of year! (Ages 3 to 8) --Emilie Coulter"

My Review: This is a cute classic story and munchkin enjoyed seeing all the animals and laughing at how the animals were wearing clothes. The illustrations seemed a little busy to me and Munchkin wasn't able to focus as well as usual. That said it is a classic story and perfect for the fall and winter weather.
My Rating: While this wasn't the greatest for me, many others cherish this book. I give it a rating of Two Paws and a Stump Wag.
Good Night! Sweet Dreams!
