I want my hat backis a wonderful picture book by Jon Klassen, highly recommended and I think either award nominated or winning. The pictures are very simple – the bear from the front cover appears throughout the book in pretty much the same pose, and the dialogue is differentiated by being in different colours. Simple story, bear has lost hat, bear looks for hat, bear finds stolen hat, bear deals with thief. But lots of dead pan humour in it, which I absolutely adore, and means I can stand reading this over and over.
Does it have a happy ending? Depends on whether you are the bear or the rabbit. 😉
it’s got: a bear and a hat.
it’s not: a happy ending. If you’re a rabbit.
