One day, out of nowhere, a magic hat flies through the sky and lands on the head of a crank-looking old man, who is immediately transforms into a toad. The hat flies off the toad's head and lands on another person, who is transformed into a baboon. The wind picks the hat up again, and the magic continues.

Kids will enjoy guessing what animal they'll see when they turn the page and seeing the transformation of the people. Another goodreads user (can't remember who) mentioned that she read this to kids then asked them to decide what they think they'd turn into. I think that would be a fun follow-up to reading this one.

And before I end this, I have said it before and I will say it again: I am a devoted Tricia Tusa fan. I will look at anything she's illustrated.
