Stormy Kromer is an engineer who loves driving trains. But he has one problem: he can’t find the right hat for a railroad man. He tries a derby, a cowboy hat, and a fireman’s hat. Nothing works. Stormy tells his wife, Ida, not to worry, he’ll figure out something. But Ida isn’t worrying—she’s thinking. If only Stormy would listen . . .Brought to life by Andrea U’Ren’s colorful paintings, this spirited story is loosely based on the actual creation in 1903 of the hat still used by railroad workers today.
