Overview

From the creators of the 310,000-copy New York Times bestseller THE QUILTMAKER'S GIFT, a delightful celebration of the eccentric in all of us!

Miss Hunnicutt is wearing her new hat from Paris--and it has a CHICKEN on it! Everyone knows you can't wear a chicken on your head!

The prim little town of Littleton is in a tizzy preparing for a visit from the Queen. So when Miss Hunnicutt steps out in her new hat, the stuffy townsfolk are scandalized. The chicken has to go! But plucky Miss Hunnicut stands up for her right to wear what she likes. And when the Queen's arrival prompts a surprising turn of events, the townspeople learn to celebrate the silly eccentricities that make life interesting.

Editorial Reviews

The Barnes & Noble Review
The top-notch team who brought you The Quiltmaker's Gift returns with an outlandish story about an independent-minded woman's new hat and the commotion it causes.

On the day the Queen is due to visit Littleton, Miss Hunnicutt is sporting a snappy new chapeau -- from Paris, no less. The only problem is, the townsfolk think the hat is a little too lively. In fact, there's a live chicken perched on top! When the daring trendsetter steps outside, she meets a critical Mrs. McSnoot, whose large poodle winds up chasing Miss Bisbee's 27 cats up a tree, which causes a towel-clad Miss Whimple to jump out her bathroom window, and…well, you get the picture. There are lots more mishaps blamed on Miss Hunnicut's new fashion accessory, but in the end, the determined dowager is vindicated. For when the Queen finally arrives, it turns out she and Miss Hunnicut are truly birds of a feather.

This plucky tale about confidence and independence will have kids laughing out loud while reinforcing the message that being different can lead to wonderful things. We give this great read-aloud story three cheers -- or, make that three clucks. Matt Warner
