The Lost Hat


How we came to publish this one

We were approached by Albert Ventura – who had already had this published in Catalan. He retained the rights, including translation rights and we were able to proceed.      

The title

It really is simple and to the point. 

Some notes about the process

Albert had already translated the book into English and had done a very good job on this. One of our editors worked with him to polish the text.         

The cover

The cover image was of course created by Albert. As he is an author illustrator and this book already has a pedigree in the original Catalan, it made sense to retain the original cover.   

Some notes about style

The figures in it are quirky and endearing at the same time.

Who we think the reader is

This is the type of picture book a caring adult can read to a child. There are plenty of fascinating details in the picture which tell a story supplementary to the one included in the text. The figures in it are quirky and endearing at the same time.

What else

As ever with picture books, especially now that we might read on screens more often, this is a lovely book to hold. It’s size and format makes it ideal for an adult and child to share.
