A boy and his mom happen upon a lone hat in the middle of the park. It's bright red, and fits just right. Turns out, Hat has a ton of important uses! It shields the sun. It doubles as a sled or a boat -- it even fights crocodiles in Africa...
But what about Hat's owner? Maybe he or she needs Hat even more than Henry does.
A sparse, artistic picture book about a boy and his imagination, and his choice to do the right thing.
