Children's Book Review: This is Not My Hat
This Is Not My Hat
Written and illustrated by: Jon Klassen
Published by: Candlewick Press, 2012
A fish has stolen a hat. And he'll probably get away with it. Probably.
* I've been saving this post until after Halloween. I saw this book on display several weeks ago at the library. It was just recently released and I had to read it. I have become a big fan of Jon Klassen since reading Extra Yarn and I Want My Hat Back. I think we were the first ones to borrow this book since it has the new book smell and non-crinkled pages. This book is a sequel to I Want My Hat Back but has different characters, and a different setting. In this book a little fish has stolen a hat and thinks he will get away with it, trying to justify his theft. The pictures in this book add to the humor and understanding of what's really going on. I think this is a book that I enjoyed more than the kids!

Family Rating: 2 thumbs up.
