A sneaky fish learns a lesson in crime and punishment in the bestselling, multiple award-winning sequel to I Want My Hat Back. In the first and only title to win both the prestigious Kate Greenaway and Caldecott Medal, and by the illustrator of the bestselling I Want My Hat Back and Sam and Dave Dig a Hole, a tiny fish proudly wears a blue top 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
appealing as much to adults as children * Bookseller *
the silence of the last page is deafening, and this book will encourage lots of conversation in the classroom -- Marilyn Brocklehurst * Bookseller *
this book will have youngsters questioning what actually happening, and invites the reader to look again -- Vanessa Lewis * Bookseller *
Thrillingly original and subtle in its approach to storytelling * We Love This Book *
A cautionary tale told through subversive and sumptuously illustrated visual humour * CBI recommended reads of 2012 *
This is perfectly pared-down storytelling which builds the tension and the outrageous denouement with exquisite timing. (Librarian's choice) * Reading Zone *
I will only say that Klassen cleverly covers theft, suspiscion, crime, punishment, guilt and death without using a single word. * Inis *
This is as funny and minimalist as its predecessor. * The Guardian *
Glorious illustrations convey a wide range of emotions in the glint of an eye and the moral is a good talking point. * Daily Mail *
Lends itself to many retellings * The Irish Times *

“Brilliant!”

Another amazing book by the somewhat dark Jon Klassen. Beautifully illustrated with simple, yet effective imaginings. It's fabulous to see an emerging author with such a distinctive style and twisted approach to... More

“Just brilliant!”

Little Fish has, ahem, stolen a hat. The Big Fish he took it from was asleep at the time, and Little Fish is pretty sure Big Fish won’t notice, but just to be on the safe side, he’s going to go over here and hide in... More

This would touch many of the emotions of every reader, young and old.

The little fish has clearly stolen somebody else's hat. The clue is in the title.

That is very naughty... More
