The Kid Book of the Week is the Magic Hat by Mem Fox, illustrated by Tricia Tusa. I love Mem Fox. Emma was attached to Time for Bed for a long time so I looked for other books he wrote last time we were at the library. In the Magic Hat a wizards hat sweeps in to town and lands on the heads of people transforming them into different animals. The story has a great musical rhythm which keeps younger children interested. The illustrations are reminiscent of Quentin Blake, which give you lots of things to explore and talk about.
