In a book from South Africa, Grandma tells a favorite story about her childhood, when hats were obligatory on Sunday. Her mother had bought her a particularly ugly hat—''it looked just like a potty turned upside down'' and was ``a horrible yellowy- mustard color.'' Fortunately, the family car was a convertible, and Grandma managed to let the hated hat blow away. Her mama was upset, but Papa proved to be silently sympathetic. Later, after the hat was rediscovered on a friend's scarecrow, the whole family joined in the merriment when Papa said, ``no bird would dare come near that dreadful hat!'' In soft pencil and watercolor, Milne's art nicely evokes the setting in its many details.
