Industrious Giorgio, loves to work and wears a special hat for every job he does, but even Giorgio finds it too much when he is asked to fill in for the ailing stationmaster, the postmaster while he is out on an errand, and the local fishermen.

To satisfy his large appetite for work, Giorgio wears many hats. He dons a flat blue cap when he runs his gas station; a straw hat is perfect for gardening, and a chef's toque covers Giorgio's head as he prepares the food at his cafe. But in his eagerness to help out when asked, Giorgio's three hats turn into six--he kindly fills in for the mailman, the train conductor and the sardine fisherman. So many jobs make Giorgio a very tired fellow, causing him to relinquish some of his tasks--and hats--to add a nightcap to his collection. Wittman's active, visually descriptive text sets a fetching scene, but her choppy sentences frequently decelerate the proceedings. Hillenbrand's ( Travelling to Tondo ; I'm the Best! ) sunny palette reflects the Mediterranean flavor of an Italian town. His Giorgio is a bearded, sturdy block of a man with an infectious sparkle in his eye; he shines as a picture-book protagonist. Ages 5-9.
