Synopsis: Harriet and her cousin Minna are proper Boston ladies that find the latest in hat fashions for women--dead birds on top--appalling. So they gather the most prominent people in town to form a club to protect the birds--the Audubon Society. Full-color illustrations bring to life this tale of how one of America's oldest preservation groups came to be.

From School Library Journal: Kindergarten-Grade 4?In an amusing picture-book format, Lasky tells the story of two strong-willed women who started the Audubon Society in Massachusetts around the turn of the century. When wearing dead birds as hat decorations became a raging fashion, Harriet Hemenway and her cousin Minna Hall were outraged. They contacted other ladies of fashion to start a club, named it after John James Audubon, and began the Bird Hat Campaign. The bird hats and their wearers look ridiculous, just as the cousins claim. The exaggerated expressions and postures of Catrow's figures bring humor to every page, but the serious business of political action comes through just the same. Lasky neatly includes the varied strategies that the women employed to achieve their purpose. Though equally determined, Harriet and Minna have distinctly different personalities. Most, but not all, of the incidents are based on actual events, which the author's note clearly explains. Like Rhoda Blumberg's Bloomers! (Bradbury, 1993), Lasky's title will entertain young readers while offering them a fascinating and little-known slice of history.?Steven Engelfried, West Linn Public Library, OR
