Tilda Pinkerton’s Magical Hats by Angela Shelton

Tilda Pinkerton’s magic is spread once again in this adorable children’s story, but this time Tilda is not the main character of the book.

I truly liked Madison Mae and Albert. They were good, happy kids and really just had it in their hearts to help their grandparents’ farm. The supporting cast of talking critters was entertaining as well.

The villain in the book, Mister Seedy, was exactly as his name implied. This book is made for a young audience, so it was nice to have a villain that’s not too scary, but enough for the kids to still know he’s a bad guy.

Everyone in the story, not just the kids, learned a valuable lesson or two. I think this is a great book for an audience of 6-7 year olds…I tried reading it to my 4 year old and he just didn’t have the attention span for the long pages with no pictures. The book does contain blank pictures that are meant to be colored in, though!

I sincerely enjoy being in Tilda Pinkerton’s magical world, and I know many others will too.
