From Kirkus Reviews:

Annie falls in love with a purple hat she sees in a catalogue, and is certain it will go with her purple coat and her purple shoes. When it arrives in the mail it is, indeed, perfect. Annie wears it to school the next day, but somehow it's not on her head when she gets home. Her family does everything they can think of to cheer her up, and soon the entire town gets into the act, searching for the hat and offering all sorts of wacky purple hats as replacements. Annie does cheer up--who could not, when faced by all that good will?--but is extremely happy when her own purple hat arrives in the mail, again. Much of the understated humor in Pearson's affectionate tale is accomplished through the lively line drawings and watercolor illustrations. A large cast of characters, including a couple of inquisitive cats and a feisty dog, adds to the fun. Especially amusing is slouchy older brother, Ben, who feigns disinterest, but obviously cares more for Annie than he will admit. (Picture book. 3-6) -- Copyright ©1997, Kirkus Associates, LP.

From Booklist:

Ages 4^-7. First there was Lilly's purple purse, and now there is Annie's purple hat. Annie spots the hat in a catalog, and when it arrives, it is perfect. But when she goes out bird-watching with the Bird Lady and the rest of the class, her hat is lost. Annie's friends, family, and eventually the whole town get involved in looking for Annie's hat but with no luck. True, Annie does find herself with many new purple hats, courtesy of all those friends and neighbors, but it's not until her own special bonnet is returned (found in the woods by the Bird Lady) that Annie is content once more. Pearson's books are always delightful, and even though the story line is slight, the overflowing art more than takes up the slack. The watercolor-and-ink art captures both the poignancy of a favored possession getting lost and the humor of the hunt. Every delectably rendered scene is touched with shades of violet, amethyst, grape, lavender, mauve, and plum, allowing the central image to be carried through the book with purple panache.
