Review: Milo's Hat Trick

Milo's Hat Trick
Milo's Hat Trick by Jon Agee

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Milo's Hat Trick is a charming book about a bumbling magician who can't seem to get his tricks right. His boss threatens to fire him unless he can pull a rabbit out of his hat for his next show, so Milo sets out to catch a rabbit. Surprisingly, his carrot bait instead lures in a helpful bear who has learned from a rabbit how to hide in hats. The drawings are simple and cartoonish, and manage to convey emotion well. Milo's red hair and mustache are usually the brightest thing on the page, drawing attention to him. Recommended.
