Happy Birthday Madame Chapeau

“Excuse me, madame,” said a girl dressed in plaid. “I made you a gift from some yarn that I had. I made it myself, and I just want to say, I hope you enjoy it . . . and Happy Birthday!” The girl held a brightly knit cap in her hand,.

In a three-story house with a shop down below, lived the worlds finest hat maker, Madame Chapeau. Like the Lady herself, all her hats were refined. Brilliantly singular. One of a kind. So begins the tale of a lonely hat maker who matches customers to the perfect hat but lacks her own perfect match in life. Once a year, on her birthday, Madame Chapeau ventures out in her favorite bonnet to dinner. This time, a crow snatches her hat and flies away. Mon dieu! As she chases the crow through the streets of Paris, a baker, a policeman, a cowboy, and others offer her their own hats to wear. None of them are quite right, though, until one special little girl offers her a hat "knitted with love and [her] best birthday wish." From the bestselling team behind Iggy Peck, Architect and Rosie Revere, Engineer comes this delightful and very stylish story about love, community, and friendship, with some fancy hats thrown in for good measure. Praise for Happy Birthday, Madame Chapeau "Beaty carries the bounces and lilts to the very last page. Roberts' colorful, exaggerated hats (many of which are modeled on real designs) whimsically adorn the multicultural Parisian public." --Kirkus Reviews
