Tina, whose real name is Ernestina, is so small she can use a peanut shell for a boat, but her favourite pastime is seeing the world from the vantage point of someone's hat. Writer/activist Jane Jacobs wrote this story for her grandaughter, Caitlin.

"Karen Reczuch's illustrations are excellent, even though this is her first book. The characters come to life easily in Reczuch's hands. Even Tina seems believable."Journal of Canadian Materials for Young People
