The Lovereading4Kids comment

One of our Books of the Year 2016 | A Julia Eccleshare Book of the Month October 2016 Award-winning Jon Klassen is as witty, engaging and subtle as ever in this delightful story with a very big theme but told in only a very few words. Two Turtles find a hat. It looks good on both of them and they would both love to wear it. But there are two of them and only one hat. What will they do? Jon Klassen’s trademark minimalist illustrations carry all the expression that is needed to tell this story of wanting and sharing. A gem of a book to read, re-read and savour. ~ Julia Eccleshare

Synopsis

We Found a Hat by Jon Klassen

Hold on to your hats! From the Kate Greenaway-winning creator of I Want My Hat Back and This Is Not My Hat comes the much-anticipated conclusion to the celebrated hat trilogy. Two turtles have found a hat. The hat looks good on both of them. But there are two turtles. And there is only one hat...

Evoking hilarity and sympathy, the shifting eyes tell the tale in this perfectly paced story in three parts, highlighting Jon Klassen's visual comedy, deceptive simplicity and deliciously deadpan humour.

Reviews

Praise for the Hat series;

'as funny and minimalist as its predecessor' Guardian

"Deliberately understated, with delectable results... Skillful characterizations; though they're simply drawn and have little to say, each animal emerges fully realized." - Publishers Weekly (starred review)
