That's My Hat!
A little boy invents many stories with the help of 10 geometrical patterns. One day, he creates a hat, but the hat flies away and is stolen by a little monkey. He chases the hat around a pop-up city, trying desperately to get it back. During his hunt he goes to many different stores and places (the zoo, the bakery, the hairdresser, the library...). All images are built with these 10 geometrical patterns.

'Children will love exploring every nook and cranny of That's My Hat, delighting in the complexity and entertaining sequence of theatrical scenes' - Look Book Report 'Each page features a clever pop-up structure, with colourful illustrations and geometric patterns throughout. It's a pleasure to read, and the latest in a series of imaginative titles by Rigaud and Boisobert' - Creative Review 'This gorgeous book will delight those of an artistic persuasion, but there's also heaps of fun to be had with its cheeky storyline and lots of details to spot and find in the images. Its simplistic illustrations are also a great way to inspire young children to create their own impressive artworks with simple shapes' - My Little Style File 'This is a wonderfully attractive book that's a madcap caper-chase through the book's incredible three dimensional pop-out pages' - Read It Daddy 'There is definitely much creative inspiration to be taken from this book for young readers, both in the way shapes are used and as well as having a go at making pop-ups' - Library Mice 'It's a highly stylised and absorbing book which is designed to be pored over, so it's perfect to bring along on journeys or to occupy your child on a rainy day' - Junior magazine 'A great introduction to the geometric building blocks of art and design, and a fun tale to boot' - Absolutely Mama 'The subtle observational humour will keep parents smiling while children will love to peer at the book from every angle' - Mr Fox Magazine 'This is as classy as pop-up books get ... skilled paper engineering provides pop-ups of often staggering intricacy, offering layers within layers of imagery that young eyes will never tire of investigating' - Financial Times
