This Is Not My Hat
WINNER OF THE 2013 CALDECOTT MEDAL!
From the writer of the number one New York Times best-selling and award-winning I Want My Hat Back comes a second wry tale.
When a tiny fish shoots into view wearing a round blue topper (which happens to fit him perfectly), trouble could be following close in the back of. So it’s a good thing that enormous fish won’t wake up. And even though he does, it’s not like he’ll ever know what happened. . . . Visual humor swims to the fore as the best-selling Jon Klassen follows his breakout debut with another deadpan-funny tale.
Amazon Best Books of the Year 2012: Jon Klassen first surprised readers with his runaway best seller, I Want My Hat Back, and his follow-up, This Is Not My Hat is an inside out version that is even more fun. Not only did Klassen go with a dark color scheme where the last used to be light, the action takes place underwater with much of the story told through the expressive illustrations of sea creatures. From the little fish who steals a bowler hat to the crab who sells him out with eyeballs pointing the way, there are many laughs along side lessons. This time Klassen created an ambiguous ending that invites lively conversation about the conceivable outcomes and in the long run leaves it up to the child to make a decision the little fish’s fate with every reading. —Seira Wilson
