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.

On the day of the Queen's visit, the prim and proper townsfolk of Littleton are appalled when Miss Hunnicutt appears in her new hat from Paris, brimming with chicken feathers: "And the feathers were still stuck to the chicken who was happily clucking away on Miss Hunnicutt's head."
