Summary
  • "Esmé Shapiro's latest picture book delivers a surprising and emotional journey about dealing with anxiety."--
  • In the big city, people wear all kinds of hats. Not everyone wears a toad as a hat, but some people do... and some of those toad hats can be VERY bossy! Carol has always followed the orders of her demanding toad hat at the expense of her own inner voice. But when her toad hat is plucked away by a pigeon, how will Carol know what to do? After spending so long being told what to eat and do and paint, Carol's not sure what SHE wants, and nothing feels quite right. Feeling lost, she creates a new hat--a toad made out of pickles and eggs--to help guide her. Even though her new pickle-toad doesn't make a sound, Carol can hear it loud and clear! But when a pigeon takes away THAT hat too, Carol begins to understand that there is a big, booming voice that lives inside herself... and that it's well worth listening to!
