Waterstones Says

Magical milliners abound in this endlessly inventive and thoroughly charming debut about enchanted headwear, vanished ships and the dark rumblings of war.

Waterstones Children's Book of the Month for January 2022

Exclusive Edition featuring blue sprayed edges and an exclusive short story, ‘Lady Elsa Sets a Trend’, set in the world of The Hatmakers

A Standard Edition is available here

The first adventure in a spellbinding new magical world.

Cordelia comes from a long line of magical milliners, who weave alchemy and enchantment into every hat. In Cordelia's world, Making - crafting items such as hats, cloaks, watches, boots and gloves from magical ingredients - is a rare and ancient skill, and only a few special Maker families remain.

When Cordelia's father Prospero and his ship, the Jolly Bonnet, are lost at sea during a mission to collect hat ingredients, Cordelia is determined to find him. But Uncle Tiberius and Aunt Ariadne have no time to help the littlest Hatmaker, for an ancient rivalry between the Maker families is threatening to surface. Worse, someone seems to be using Maker magic to start a war.

It's up to Cordelia to find out who, and why...

Featuring illustrations by Paola Escobar.
