I guess I just don't get the point of this one. It's cute enough - love the illustrations! - but somehow I wanted more. Where did the hat come from? What made it magical? Does the boy--I mean, giant wizard--go around all the time leaving red spotted eggs that hatch into weird-looking chickens? And if so, why? And what does that have to do with the magic hat? Maybe the whole thing took place in the boy's imagination or in a dream? If so, I think I would like it better. I usually really like Mem Fox, but this one just doesn't do much for me.

I do need to add that I enjoyed seeing the people turned into an animal that looked a lot like their human self by the magic hat. That part was fun.
