Staff Reviews

From the award winning author of I Want My Hat Back comes another cautionary tale about taking what is not yours. Some books are clearly made just for kids, while others appeal to a wider audience. While this book is marketed to children, it's one of the handful of great artistic picture books that appeal to adults and children alike. Kids will enjoy the funny tale of a tiny fish who steals a small hat from a giant fish while adults will amuse themselves with the unwritten repercussions of this unfortunate decision.


Fall '12 Kids List

“Like Marilynne Robinson's Home was to Gilead, this is the other side of a beloved story -- but with a lot more giggles. Klassen's deadpan fishies reimagine the plot of I Want My Hat Back from the perspective of the hat stealer, and the results are just as suspenseful, adorable, and laugh-inducing for kids and adults alike. Though parents will have to get creative once again to explain the darkly hilarious ending to little ones, this is a book that everyone is going to want to read over and over again!”
