Review quote

‘Marley’s illustrations are a perfect match for the energetic text, with plentiful detail in each spread for a child to explore and talk about whilst being simple, colourful and full of character. When a two-year-old and a five-year-old both laugh out loud at the same time it’s clear that the book is a gem. In this case it is an absolute riot! The children especially loved Hettie’s ‘hatmosphere’ and had great fun deciding on our own favourite hats (the crab hat, blue hat and fancy hoity toity hat in case you’re interested). Hettie’s increasing emphatic refusal to swap a hat for a gnome, a comb or a dog with a bone was another particular highlight.

With hugely memorable rhyming lists for readers to join in with, this is a splendid book which deserves a place on every small person’s reading menu. This is a brilliant book for young children. We highly recommend it.’

- Armadillo Magazine

‘With its plethora of outrageous headwear, this delightfully daft tale that moves in and out of rhyme, demonstrates that language is fun, sharing is best and friendship better than standoffishness.’
- Red Reading Hub

Not My Hats! is a simple, colourful and melodic offering that gives children plenty of chance to join in with the rhyming. Needless to say, that makes it a great book for story time and for reading out aloud.
As well as having all the fun of rhyming, it’s a story of sharing and discovering how everything is better when you let your friends join in. Alea Marley’s bright and simple illustrative style fits the simple story perfectly.
The books publisher, Maverick, are making something of a speciality of these generously sized paperbacks so keep your eyes open for anything they do because you’re unlikely to be disappointed.’
