Why Cats Don’t Wear Hats
Victoria Pérez Escrivá
Illustrated by Ester García
Translated from the Spanish by Sylvia Hagge de Crespin
In this wonderfully illustrated picture book, a cat who puts on a hat finds the need to also put on glasses, then have a case for the glasses, then a jacket… and the list goes on. Until the overwhelmed cat decides that it is better to just not wear a hat in the first place!
