The Not Perfect Hat Club


NPHC - Marianne Malmstrom

The Not Perfect Hat Club centers around three perfectionists – a purebred golden retriever (who is a dismal failure in the show ring), a skateboarding slam poet, and a classical violinist who is determined to be the next Mozart. Together they discover that perfect is not an option, and that each has something special to contribute to the world.

The book is the result of dozens visits I’ve done with elementary school kids over that past two years. Time and time again, kids told me their work was ugly, messed up, stupid or bad. It was clear that even though they understood that no one is perfect, they still felt they were expected to be. I wrote The Not Perfect Hat Club as way to give them stories and characters that reflect their struggles with perfection and show them they can only be perfect at being themselves.
