This Is Not My Hat by Jon Klassen
It’s no surprise that Klassen’s dark comedy about a hat-stealing fish took this honor. The illustrations are simply stunning.
As much I as enjoyed This Is Not My Hat, Klassen’s 2011 hit I Want My Hat Back is still my favorite.
The quirky story of a bear who has lost his hat is laugh-out-loud funny. I recommend I Want My Hat Back and This Is Not My Hat for kids ages 4 and up.
