Synopsis

Zara loves to help her father, Selig, design hats for his shop. They use only the best fabrics, the prettiest ribbons, and the most beautiful feathers. But when they run out of feathers, Selig doesn't know what to do. As he travels far and wide in search of more, Zara puts her imagination to work-and shows everyone just how far a little creativity can go. Inspired by his own great-grandfather, who ran a hat shop in the early 1900s, Paul Meisel has created a heartwarming story about a loving family that is perfect for Father's Day-or any day of the year.

Sarah Sullivan is the author of the picture book ROOT BEER AND BANANA, illustrated by Greg Shed. Of DEAR BABY she says, "I always wondered how it would feel to have a younger brother or sister. My brother told me a little bit about how he felt when I came along. I suppose Mike's letters grew out of those conversations." The recipient of an MFA in Writing for Children from Vermont College, Sarah Sullivan writes from her home in West Virginia, where she lives with her husband and her cat. Paul Meisel is well known for his illustrations in more than thirty children's books, including WHAT'S THE MATTER IN MR. WHISKERS' ROOM? by Michael Elsohn Ross, WHAT'S THAT NOISE? by Michelle Edwards and Phyllis Root, the Cool Crazy Crickets books by David Elliott, and the LET'S-READ-AND-FIND-OUT science series. He says, "There is nothing better than having the opportunity to think and draw like a kid. Cut paper, markers, crayons -- I had a ball!
