I Want My Hat Back Paperback

Illustrated by Jon Klassen

4.5 out of 5 (3 ratings)


In his bestselling debut picture book, the multiple award-winning Jon Klassen, illustrator of This Is Not My Hat and Sam and Dave Dig a Hole, tells the story of a bear who's hat has 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 it he begins to lose hope, lying flat on his back in despair, a deer comes by and asks a rather obvious question that suddenly sparks the bear's memory and renews his search with a vengeance...Told completely in dialogue, this quirky, hilarious, read-aloud tale plays out in sly illustrations brimming with visual humour and winks at the reader who will be thrilled to be in on the joke.

Review by

This story about a well-mannered bear on a quest to find his missing hat is told in simple language. A hilarious read-aloud that students young and ole will enjoy. A great book that even my 11 year old son was laughing so hard he almost cried. A great story for keeping a goal or objective in mind.

Review by

This is a book about a bear that lost his hat and by the end of the book he finds out that a rabbit had stolen it so he seeks revenge. The book is a fun to read and has cute/simple illustrations. There is a lot of dialogue in it which would be good to teach a lesson on quotation marks and when to use them
