In a three-story house with a shop down below,lived the worlds finest hat maker, Madame Chapeau. Like the Lady herself, all her hats were refined. Brilliantly singular. One of a kind. So begins the tale of a lonely hat maker who matches customers to the perfect hat but lacks her own perfect match in life. Once a year, on her birthday, Madame Chapeau ventures out in her favorite bonnet to dinner. This time, a crow snatches her hat and flies away. Mon dieu! As she chases the crow through the streets of Paris, a baker, a policeman, a cowboy, and others offer her their own hats to wear. None of them are quite right, though, until one special little girl offers her a hat "knitted with love and [her] best birthday wish." From the bestselling team behind Iggy Peck, Architect and Rosie Revere, Engineer comes this delightful and very stylish story about love, community, and friendship, with some fancy hats thrown in for good measure. Praise for Happy Birthday, Madame Chapeau "Beaty carries the bounces and lilts to the very last page. Roberts' colorful, exaggerated hats (many of which are modeled on real designs) whimsically adorn the multicultural Parisian public. " - Kirkus Reviews

Andrea Beaty is the author of When Giants Come to Play, Iggy Peck, Architect, Rosie Revere, Engineer, Secrets of the Cicada Summer, Attack of the Fluffy Bunnies and Dorko the Magnificent. David Roberts has illustrated many children's books, including Iggy Peck, Architect and Rosie Revere, Engineer. From a young age David had an interest in fashion and often made clothes for his sister's dolls and indeed his sister. So much so that he decided to study fashion design at college. Here he developed a particular interest in hats and made them for family and friends before taking a job with milliner Stephen jones in London. Eventually though he found his true calling of illustration but he always maintained an interest in fashion and it plays a big part of his illustrative style. He continues to make hats when time permits and so he was delighted to work on Madame Chapeau for Andrea Beaty. David was inspired by the creativity of Isabella Blow when creating the look for Madame Chapeau and the book features many of the extraordinary hats that she was photographed wearing. Hats designed by Philip Treacy, Stephen Jones and Elsa Schiaparelli all feature in the book along with some of David's own designs and some classics like the famous Derby worn by Charlie Chaplin and the crumpled top hat worn by mime artist Marcel Marceau.
