This is Not My Hat Paperback

Illustrated by Jon Klassen

3 out of 5 (1 rating)


Winner of the Caldecott Medal and Kate Greenaway Medal 2014 From the creator of the bestselling I Want My Hat Back and Sam and Dave Dig a Hole comes the story of a tiny fish who proudly wears a blue hat.

It fits him perfectly. Problem is, trouble could be following close behind...So it's a good thing that the enormous fish he took it from won't wake up. And even if he does, it's not as though he'll ever know what happened, right?

With so many emotions conveyed in just the glint of an eye, visual humour swims to the fore in this thrillingly original, perfectly-paced cautionary tale.

Review by

This is simple story of fish who steals a hat from another fish. He is sure he will not be caught. The plot line is his thinking as he swims to where he feels he will be safe. It would be a good read aloud to dicuss decisions and why taking things that do not belong to you is wrong. The text is simple and good for young readers. It could be ready over and over to help with fluency or to lern basic sentence patterns. It is witty and the bad guy does not win. It could be used in a counseling libray as well to teach basic morals and choice making.
