#BookADay: MR. ZINGER'S HAT , written by Cary Fagan, illustrated by Dušan Petričić​ ( +Tundra Books  ​, 2012). What a wonderful tribute to storytellers everywhere! 

“A charming, marvelous tale surrounding the art of creating and telling stories, Mr. Zinger’s Hat celebrates the budding friendship between an elderly writer and a young boy who discovers a storyteller within … Fagan’s writing is beautifully crafted … Petričić’s engaging artwork deftly juxtaposes two distinct styles which portray a real-life setting and an imaginary world … The illustrations vividly depict the storyteller’s wry humour and the boy’s wide-eyed innocence.”
