I Want My Hat Back, by Jon Klassen

IwantmyhatbackI just love this book.  Jon Klassen is a fantastic illustrator.  His illustrations are quite distinctive.  While this book looks really simple, the humor is dry and there is just that touch of darkness that older readers love.

“My hat is gone.  I want it back.”  A big bear is looking for his pointy red hat.  He asks lots of animals if they’ve seen his hat.  A rabbit wearing a red, pointy hat suspiciously answers the bear’s query by saying that he did not steal a red hat.  The book goes on until the bear remembers where he saw his hat.  I won’t tell you what happens next, but let’s just say that the bear gets his hat back.

Such a great book.  Enjoy!
