Keith the Cat with the Magic Hat
Reading Level: K − 1st Grade

From the author of Norman the Slug with the Silly Shell comes a sweet, silly, and sassy picture book about a cat who has a hat that seems magical--but the powers of the hat aren't quite what they seem. Meet Keith--a very cute cat with a magical hat! When Keith wears the hat, it makes bunnies appear out of nowhere!

It even makes a stick move all on its own! But when Keith's hat falls off, will the magic still work and save the day?

Kirkus Reviews

With its brief text and clear visual cues, it’s a good introduction for younger preschoolers to the synergy of text and artwork. A silly romp that does some subtly hard lifting. (Picture book. 2-7).

Sue Hendra
Sue Hendra grew up in Wimbledon and has always loved making up stories and drawing pictures. Her favourite book as a child was Mr Silly. She graduated from Brighton University in 1994 and has been creating picture books ever since. In 2006 she met Paul Linnet and could instantly see that she'd met a fellow nitwit who liked talking nonsense. They went on to create many bestselling books together, working in a small room in their house in Brighton. Sue loves swimming, and can swim up and down for a very long time. Her favourite book is still Mr Silly.

Paul Linnet was born in Brighton and grew up in the Midlands, reading Tintin and playing classic 80s video games, before becoming obsessed with scribbling, writing, guitars and motorcycles. He studied Graphic Design at Derby University, and later moved back to Brighton where he met Sue Hendra. They made up a story about a fish with fingers and then a slug with a doughnut for a shell, and now no one can stop them from writing more and more frankly ridiculous books. They live in Brighton - and Paul still loves scribbling, writing, guitars and motorcycles.
