Hats Off to Mr. Pockles! (Hardcover)
Mr. Pockles has many wonderful hats for all occasions; more than anything, he wants to wear all of his hats to Hat Day at the PandaPolitan club, but he has only one head and is not a panda. To console himself, he heads to the Treat House and runs into Lady CoCo Fitz-Tulip, a panda in a hurry. When her hat is consumed by baby rabbits, it's up to Mr. Pockles to save the day! A charming story about friendship and clever hats.— Cathy
A New York Times bestselling author and a rising-star illustrator present an utterly hilarious, oh-so-silly tale about Mr. Pockles, an odd little dog with a big hat collection--and an even bigger heart.
For Mr. Pockles, going without a hat is as unthinkable as going around without any pants on. He has millions of hats, for every occasion--an Eating His Cornflakes hat, a Drinking Cups of Tea hat, and even an In the Bath hat--but for some reason, he doesn't have any friends. One day, when Lady CoCo Fitz-Tulip--a Very Important Panda--finds that her hat has been gobbled up by some hungry bunnies, Mr. Pockles knows just how to help. Overflowing with silliness, here's a charming celebration of friendship, inclusion, and the joy of sharing.
