Clara Button loves hats, and when her older brother Ollie breaks her favourite, Mum takes them on a special hat day out. While visiting the Victoria and Albert Museum, Clara gets lost and embarks on an exciting journey of discovery. Meanwhile, Ollie is having adventures of his own, with swords and tigers!
Follow Clara’s adventure around the Victoria and Albert Museum in our stunning new, interactive app. The app features Emily Sutton’s original illustrations and narration by Amy de la Haye as well as animated finger tracking and hidden interactive elements. Roll your finger over the screen to watch buttons fly, move the iPad to spin buttons (and Ollie!) and keep exploring every page for hidden treats.
