I Want My Hat Back by Jon Klassen

Age range: 4+

The Story: A bear has lost his hat. He asks a succession of animals if they have seen his hat before the deer’s question makes him realise that he has already seen it! The bear is very polite and “Thank you anyway” has become my daughter’s catchphrase. It has a rather ambiguous ending.

My daughter and I found this book very funny. The animals are drawn using muted colours with the exception of red for the hat and other defining moments. The story is told completely through dialogue and is simple and repetitive which is good for a beginning reader.

Jon Klassen also has a new book out called This Is Not My Hat which we haven’t read yet.
