Publishers Weekly #1 bestseller, Jan Brett’s heartwarming story of Hedgie the hedgehog’s misadventures in the snow has become a family favorite.

When Lisa’s woolen stocking flies off the closeline, Hedgie can’t resist poking his nose in. He tries to pull it out, but the stocking is stuck on his prickles. At first the other animals laugh at the sight of him, but when they realize they might like something to keep their heads dry and ears warm, too, even more silliness ensues.

Like its companion The Mitten, The Hat is now available as a wonderful board book to share with young children.

“Brett’s signature art introduces animal characters as endearing and expressive as those who congregated in her earlier book’s expandable white mitten.” —Publishers Weekly

“A clever and appealing picture book. . . . The pictures, story, and subject matter make this a natural for sharing aloud.” —School Library Journal

Read Review

Santa Claus is going to town! Marrying the magic of Scanimation with the universally beloved figure of Santa Claus, Santa! is a holiday book unlike any other.

It presents a Santa that readers have never seen before?acrobatic, playful, a little mischievous, filled with joyful energy. Here’s Santa hula-hooping. Santa juggling. Santa doing cartwheels and Santa on a unicycle. Children, as they did with Gallop!, will want to imitate Santa’s irresistibly happy motions. The grown-ups will be unable to stop smiling?it’s hard to imagine a cooler character than this jolly St. Nick as he runs, spins, gyrates, backflips, and blows big bubbles.

Scanimation is the technology behind the instant New York Times best-selling series that started with Gallop!, to most recently The Wizard of Oz. Author and inventor Rufus Butler Seder continues to refine the Scanimations, with ever more smooth-flowing and detailed moving images?perfectly applied, in this case, to the irresistible figure of Santa Claus.
