On what began as a fine day, a bear named Rembrandt lost his hat. As all of us do now and then, Rembrandt meets up with an unlucky day. He loses something special, something that belonged to him, something hard to replace. It is a frustrating predicament, especially as a bossy bird, a bored cat, and an outspoken rabbit decide to help. Too polite and accommodating to refuse, Rembrandt must find—little by little—a way to take care of things on his own.
With unique mixed-media illustrations, Mary Newell DePalma brings to life this world populated by quirky animals and stylish hats, and together art and text reveal the merits and rewards of patience and perseverance.

Many of Rembrandt’s portraits show the subject in a fine hat, the inspiration for this charming tale of a teddy bear searching for the perfect hat.
