Overview

One-hundred-and-eight-year-old Maebelle has a lot of hats. And every year she makes a hat for the town's annual hat contest. One-hundred-and-eight-year-old Maebelle has a lot of friends. And every year her friends fly south for the winter. But this year, one of her friends is left behind. Young Binkle is afraid to leave home without his beloved possessions. So he packs his things into one of Maebelle's suitcases. But he can't fly with it. It is too heavy.
Maebelle has worked hard on her hat entry. She is very pleased with her work. But her friend Binkle needs help. She must persuade him to leave his things behind.
This is a warm, funny story about two friends who act purely out of love. And both characters are equally unforgettable.
