I Want My Hat Back
Walker Books Hardcover
The bears hat is gone and he wants it back. Patiently and politely, he asks the animals he comes across, one by one, whether they have seen it. Each animal says no, some more elaborately than others. But just as he begins to lose hope, lying flat on his back in despair, a deer comes by and asks a rather obvious question that suddely sparks the bears memory and renews his search with a vengeance. Told completely in dialogue, this quirky tale takes on the classic repetitive tale plays out in sly illustrations laced with visual humour and winks at the reader with a wry irreverence that will have kids of all ages thrilled to be in on the joke.
Written and illustrated by Jon Klassen.
