Arnold Lobel (1933-1987) was the award-winning author and illustrator of many beloved children's books, including the classic I Can Read books about Frog and Toad, and the Caldecott Medal winning Fables.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 3 A fun-filled story of the slightly eccentric Pottle clan, and particularly of R. R. Pottle the Third, who loved hats. He consoles a rather lonely heart by wearing three hats at once. On a visit to a hat store he finds the perfect wife, wearing, of course, the perfect hat. There is also a nice twist at the end, concerning R. R. Pottle the Fourth's obsession. Lobel's depiction of the Pottles is imaginative and clever. The softly colored watercolors show Pottle using a fishing pole to choose his day's hat from his bed and reveal the Pottle mansion to be a melange of canes and umbrellas (his parents' loves). Even better, though, is the richness and rhythm of the language: "WHAT HATS! There were fezzes and face veils, tiaras and tam-o'-shanters." Young readers may have to sound out some words but will soon enjoy rolling them off their tongue. A nice way to introduce youngsters to the riches to be found in the English language.
