One fine day, from out of town--and without any warning at all--a magic hat appears in the sky. It tumbles and bounces through the air and makes magic wherever it lands. Everyone is delighted as, one by one, the townspeople are transformed into giant playful animals. And then a wizard arrives. . . . With irresistible rhyming language and bright, whimsical illustrations, this perfect read-aloud by internationally acclaimed author Mem Fox will weave its way into the hearts of young children everywhere.--from the publisher

For those who do story times:

Audience participation with the animals (make the sound the animal makes)

and the audience contributes the chorus: "Oh, the magic hat, the magic hat, it moves

like this, it moves like that" with hands raised. A simple, proven winner for my department for large-group storytelling.
