Milo's Hat Trick
Agee, Jon

Milo the magician is a mess. Not only does he botch his card tricks andtangle his rope tricks, but he can't even manage the old standby: pulling arabbit from a hat. Spurred on by his manager's fury, Milo heads out of the cityto find himself a rabbit. Dangling a carrot over his top hat, our magnificentmagician captures... a bear. Here is where his luck turns. As it happens, thisparticular bear is adept at jumping into hats: " You just pretend your bones aremade of rubber," he says. " It's a secret I learned from a rabbit. " Returning tothe city, (after a brief mix-up on the subway) , the two quickly become a smashsensation. But after popping in and out of 762 hats, the bear is positivelypooped. Can Milo carry on without his rubber-boned buddy? Jon Agee illustrates his eccentric story with strange yet wonderfulillustrations of blank-eyed, big-nosed, redheaded Milo in too-short trousers,and the cavalier, hat-hopping bear. Perfect comedic timing and a nutty plotensure that readers of all ages will adore this tale of a misfit's triumph. (Ages 3 to 8) --Emilie Coulter
