Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Fall '12 Kids List
“Like Marilynne Robinson's Home was to Gilead, this is the other side of a beloved story -- but with a lot more giggles. Klassen's deadpan fishies reimagine the plot of I Want My Hat Back from the perspective of the hat stealer, and the results are just as suspenseful, adorable, and laugh-inducing for kids and adults alike. Though parents will have to get creative once again to explain the darkly hilarious ending to little ones, this is a book that everyone is going to want to read over and over again!”

Description

WINNER OF THE 2013 CALDECOTT MEDAL!

From the creator of the #1 New York Times best-selling and award-winning I Want My Hat Back comes a second wry tale.


When a tiny fish shoots into view wearing a round blue topper (which happens to fit him perfectly), trouble could be following close behind. So it’s a good thing that enormous fish won’t wake up. And even if he does, it’s not like he’ll ever know what happened. . . . Visual humor swims to the fore as the best-selling Jon Klassen follows his breakout debut with another deadpan-funny tale.
