I Want My Hat Back
I Want My Hat Back
Illustrated by Jon Klassen


This book is perfect. One of my most favorites. Ever. —Recommended by Tân, City Lights Books

The bear's 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 the bear begins to despond, a deer comes by and asks a simple question that sparks the bear's memory and renews his search with a vengeance. Told completely in dialogue, this delicious take on the classic repetitive tale plays out in sly illustrations laced with visual humor-- and winks at the reader with a wry irreverence that will have kids of all ages thrilled to be in on the joke.


A picture-book delight by a rising talent tells a cumulative tale with a mischievous twist.
