This is a picture book debut by a rising talent that tells a cumulative tale with a cheeky twist, aided by graphically simple, and truly hilarious, illustrations. The bear's hat is 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 take on the classic repetitive tale plays out in sly illustrations laced with visual humour and winks at the reader with a wry irreverence that will have kids of all ages thrilled to be in on the joke. This title features an exciting new author/illustrator talent, previously an artist for Dreamworks Feature Animation. It's subversive humour sure to please children and adults. It is perfect as a read aloud.

“Fun and just a little odd...”

I love Klassen's work - he's not afraid to go to some interesting places in his stories even though they're for very young kids.The illustrations are great but it's the mood of this book that... More

“Genius”

I am HUGE fan of Jon Klassen. I think his work is absolute genius. This witty and slightly sinister (but in a very good way!) picture book perfectly depicts the power of illustration in children's books.

“I'm not a fan”

I didn't really enjoy this picture book at all; the illustrations were bland and dull and the story was repetitive and unimaginative. The ending, which involves a bear eating a rabbit because it stole his hat, is... More
