Bridget loves to draw, and she likes to wear a beret for inspiration. So when her beloved hat blows away, Bridget searches for it high and low. She files a Missing Beret Report. She even considers other hats, but none of them feel quite right. It's no use; without her beret, Bridget can't seem to draw. How will she overcome her artist's block?
Make sure to check out Bridget's notebook scribbles at the end of the book for her thoughts and facts on art!
Bridget's Beret is a 2011 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

"Unexpectedly clever." --The Washington Post
"Hilarious...A witty, well-shaped story...and a clever homage to many of the Great Artists and their works, from Leonardo to Warhol." --Kirkus, Starred
"There are great suggestions at the back of the book for getting started on new projects." --Orlando Sentinel
"This smart, saucy book, with its spacious cartoon-style art, is both a spur to artistic endeavor and a message about inspiration and hard work. Yet the motivations are cocooned by a crackin' good tale and tempered by a full-faceted heroine. Tips for readers about creating their own art neatly complete an already strong package that can easily be worked into the curriculum." --Booklist, Starred Review
"Lichtenheld takes this story beyond predictable spirit-was-in-you-all-along take by providing a respectful, age-appropriate acknowledgement of the fickleness of the artistic muse" --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Lichtenheld's ink, colored pencil, and watercolor cartoon illustrations, heavy on line and filled with childlike drawings, add humor and character to the story." --School Library JournalAbout the Author:
Tom Lichtenheld is the illustrator of the New York Times bestselling Duck Rabbit. He has also written and illustrated many popular books for children, including Everything I Know about Pirates and What Are You So Grumpy About. He lives in Geneva, Illinois, with his wife, Jan.
