Summaries and Reviews
A man who lives in a dilapidated top hat lets greed get the best of him when Ant Sadie grants him wishes for crumbs of food, in a fanciful story about the power of giving and the emptiness of greed. description: Product Description:

"There once was a man, who lived in a hat."

Not spacious, like a cowboy's ten-gallon hat; not stylish,

Like a fedora - just a rather dilapidated top hat, the kind not-so-talented magicians try to pull rabbits out of.

"You call this a house?" complained the man.

"I don't think so."

And to make things worse, he now has to share his modest living space with bugs!

"Not so fast," said the ant as he reached of the bug spray. "Let's do some business."

The deal? Crumbs for a wish.

"Hmm…" the man thought. "I deserve better than this."

But the man in the hat is never satisfied.

Will Ant Sadie continue to grant his wishes, each on more outrageous that the last?

  • So whimsical and wonderful - you'll almost forget there's a lesson
  • Bright, lively illustrations delight the eye and bring the characters charmingly to life
  • Delivers a fun, fanciful lesson about the emptiness of greed
  • A story parents will want to share with their children again and again
