Editorial Reviews

“Every child needs a Mr. Zinger – and his hat! – in his or her life…. This book oh-so-softly brings across a sweet, multigenerational message about sharing the power of imagination.”
—Booklist
 
“The illustrations by Dušan Petrièiæ are beautiful and very expressive.”
—Highly Recommended, CM Magazine

 “A charming, marvelous tale surrounding the art of creating and telling stories, Mr. Zinger’s Hat celebrates the budding friendship between an elderly writer and a young boy who discovers a storyteller within … Fagan’s writing is beautifully crafted … Petričić’s engaging artwork deftly juxtaposes two distinct styles which portray a real-life setting and an imaginary world … The illustrations vividly depict the storyteller’s wry humour and the boy’s wide-eyed innocence.”
– Jury Members (Winner of the 2013 Marilyn Baillie Picture Book Award)
