Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Without sugarcoating the ordeal, the book is upbeat, culminating in a class party for which everyone wears a favorite hat."

Booklist

Ilene Cooper
Originally published and reviewed as a small press book , this revised edition has about a third more text and new illustrations. It is the story of young Kathy, who has always liked hats but finds a fresh use for them when she must undergo chemotherapy treatments for cancer. Without sugarcoating the ordeal ("I didn't like it when they poked me with a needle to put medicine in"), the book is upbeat, culminating in a class party for which everyone wears a favorite hat. Westcott's bright illustrations are full of life, just the right note for this sort of book. A good piece of bibliotherapy that can be used to explain what the cancer patient is going through when questions arise in the classroom.

    Kathy became our angel on earth!

    Reading this book may have saved my daughter's life. The story is beautiful and after my daughter read this book, she shared a bump on her arm with us that turned out to be cancer. She is still wearing hats!!
