The language in this book is light and simple which makes it easy to read. And the rhyming of words makes it fun to read. I think a theme for this book is that everyone is not that different. There are all these different types of animals wanting to all live in the same place, an elf's hat, and they do! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0735812543, Hardcover)

An elf drops his hat on the forest floor. Along comes a frog who decides the cap will make a fine house. Before long a mouse joins him, and soon animals big and small move in too and make themselves at home. There is just enough room for everyone—until the last, teeny-weeny creature comes along. Then, watch out! John A. Rowe's exuberant illustrations add an extra measure of humor to Brigitte Weninger's spirited adaptation of a classic cumulative tale from Russia.
