The Baby in the Hat

"Delightful" is the only way to describe this book.  In just a few simple lines and some wonderful pictures, a boy tells the story of his best friend, who by good luck is in the right place at the right time to catch a falling baby.   This sets into motion an adventure that takes him to sea and makes him captain of a ship.  He eventually returns home as a young man.  The ending might not be a surprise, but it's sweet nonetheless!
