    When it was first published, in 1976, this poetic romp featured Kuskin's own illustrations. This new edition showcases the late poet's mastery of verse and her acute awareness of both children's senses of humor and the value they place on special belongings. As a young boy receives increasingly silly gifts from his mother, he insists on using them simultaneously and is soon sporting not only a hat but also fancy shoes, fireman boots, skis, and a Halloween mask, all while cavorting around in the snow on the back of an elephant, carrying a mouse in a house, and playing a cello. Hawkes' pictures lack the energy of the text, but they are skillfully executed and include some hidden surprises. As the gifts accumulate, so will the giggles: just see if you can make it through the cumulative rhyme in one breath without cracking up! The adventure comes full circle when the time comes for the little boy to replace his well-loved and well-worn hat, just as the time has also come for this bundle of fun to find a new life in its updated edition.
