Review

Following on from the success of I Want My Hat Back, author and illustrator Jon Klassen has created another appealing picture book with a hat theme.

This time, a little fish has stolen an equally small bowler hat from a much bigger fish. But whilst the little fish hides himself where the plants are big and tall and close together, confident that he won't be discovered, the big fish is already on his trail...

Klassen's beautiful illustrations transform this simple picture book text into a work of art. Adults and children alike will enjoy poring over the gorgeous page layouts, as well as the deadpan humour of this story of pride coming before a fall. The final spreads in which the over-confident little fish gets his comeuppance will particularly appeal to young readers.
