Hats Off to Jon Klassen!
THIS IS NOT MY HAT! by Jon Klassen. Candlewick Press 2012.
We all fell head over heels for I WANT MY HAT BACK last year. Now, Klassen offers another book that centers on a hat, in this case, a hat theft. A small fish darts through the water admitting that the cap he is wearing is not his own (or her own). He stole it. From a bigger fish who was sleeping and did not notice the theft. Of course, soon we see the fallacy of this assertion as a much bigger fish begins to track down the thief. Surprise ending? You bet. <607>
And here am I in the cool cap that Candlewick sent me to go along with the book. Love being able to hide, especially in a cool cap (which I did not have to steal).
