"This is a book full of detail - from the various fabric textures to the little mouse who certainly gets about; you'll find yourself lingering on the pages picking out all the artistic delights on offer....A sweet tale of loneliness, creativity and friendship, Happy Birthday Madame Chapeau is a picture book that fills you with that warm, fuzzy feeling and has you wishing that you too owned such a fine collection of head wear." The Illustrated Forest "A sweet reminder that however different the hats we wear may be, we are united by a common thread" Maria Popova, Brain Pickings "This is a whimsical and charming book which celebrates creativity, generosity and thoughtfulness from start to finish." Playing By The Book Blog. 'This is a charming tale of a lonely hat maker who matches customers to the perfect hats, but lacks her own perfect match in life.' Smallish Magazine
