In 1890s South Dakota, Amy and Joshua escape from their mean aunt Vootch. They plan to find their grandparents in New York and manage to team up with a traveling magician, Mortimer Wintergreen, who is also New York bound. Mortimer owns a truly magic hat with a temperamental, mischievous mind of its own.

Adventures abound as their way is blocked by outlaws, runaway hot-air balloons, geese, and the persistent Aunt Vootch—but the hat is always ready for action.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Readers will adore this droll romp. Sure to provoke heavy and sustained laughter.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Clever wordplay, engaging characters, and the kind of sober undercurrent that makes true comedy more buoyant, make this a fine addition to the short list of stories that truly entertain.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “This is a lark of an adventure story…Levoy provides a merry and suspenseful chase.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “A good read.”

    School Library Journal

  • “[A] fast and funny book that students will enjoy hearing read aloud. The story’s 1890s setting also makes an excellent jumping-off point for history lessons about turn-of-the-century America.”

    Children’s Literature

  • “Narrator Kirby Heyborne draws listeners into the plight of Amy and Joshua…When the children escape and team up with an itinerant magician…Heyborne hits his stride, dynamically rendering the cross-country chase as the trio is pursued by outlaws as well as the persistent Aunt Vootch. Heyborne gives Mortimer’s voice an easygoing tone with a lovely singsong effect when he reacts to the shenanigans of his hat…[A] funny, merry adventure.”
