Summary

Rabbit decides to make a bright red hat as a Christmas present for Little Owl so that she and Badger will be able to find him in the snow, but it also makes it easier for a hungry fox to see him.


Author Notes

Aleksandr Sergeyevich Pushkin, one of Russian's greatest poets, was born in Moscow on June 6, 1799. He studied Latin and French literature at the Lyceum.

Pushkin was often in conflict with the government and was kept under surveillance for much of his later life. He was also exiled for a period of time.

His works include Eugene Onegin and Ruslan and Ludmila.

Pushkin died on February 10, 1837 in St. Petersburg of a wound received during a duel protecting the honor of his wife.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Maggie Kneen's (An Angel Came to Nazareth, reviewed above) artwork graces a tale of Little Owl, The Christmas Hat by A.J. Wood, in which a snowy white bird gets a bright red hat from his woodland guardians so they can keep an eye on him in winter. Nature knows best, it turns out, but a warm Christmas hat can be used in many other ways. (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
