Happy Birthday Madame Chapeau

Abrams Young Readers

In a three-story house with a shop down below,

lived the worlds finest hat maker, Madame Chapeau.

Like the Lady herself, all her hats were refined.

Brilliantly singular. One of a kind.

So begins the tale of a lonely hat maker who matches customers to the perfect hat but lacks her own perfect match in life. Once a year, on her birthday, Madame Chapeau ventures out in her favourite bonnet to dinner. This time, a crow snatches her hat and flies away. Mon dieu! As she chases the crow through the streets of Paris, a baker, a policeman, a cowboy and others offer her their own hats to wear. None of them are quite right, though, until one special little girl offers her a hat "knitted with love and [her] best birthday wish."

 Great read for ages 4 and up
