Summary
From the creator of Wolves , Dogs, Tidy , and the Bear and Hare series and twice-winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal, Emily Gravett comes a fresh, funny, and punchy picture book about the futility of fads and the joy of learning to be yourself.

Harbet had a hat. His Nana had knitted it for him when he was little.

Harbet likes his comfy knitted hat, but the others keep jeering at him-- OLD HAT! OLD HAT! No matter what headwear he buys--be it a towering fruit platter hat, an old-boot-on-the-head hat, or a brightly lit traffic cone hat, Harbet cannot keep up with the latest fashions. As soon as he gets a brand new hat it is already... OLD HAT! It seems that Harbet will never fit in. But when one day he decides to go his own way, Harbet discovers just how much more fun it is to stop following others and think for yourself.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Harbet is a sweet-faced, white dog with a long snout, crooked tail, and fondness for hats, his favorite being the cozy, pom-pommed number knitted for him by his nana. One day, Harbet runs into a fashionable group of animals wearing towering fruit-topped turbans à la Carmen Miranda who shout, Old Hat! upon seeing the little dog's winter cap. Not to be left behind, Harbet hurries to a haberdashery and purchases a fruit hat of his own. His moment of trendiness is cut short, however, by another cry of Old Hat! from the chic chapeau crew, who have swapped their fruit for light-up traffic cones. The pattern continues despite Harbet's best efforts, and readers will giggle over his mounting collection of ridiculous hats. Gravett draws her amusing story to an inspiring close when Harbet makes his boldest (and best) fashion decision by embracing his individuality. Gravett's bright illustrations (created in pencil, watercolor, and acrylic) pop against plain backgrounds, and the Old Hat! refrain and silliness of the story make this a fantastic storytime choice.--Smith, Julia Copyright 2018 Booklist"
