Publisher's Summary

Bear's hat is gone. None of the animals have seen it. He is starting to become despondent, until his memory is sparked by a deer who asks just the right question.

A Perfect Read-along Production

A significant departure from candy-coated or happily-ever-after picture books, I Want My Hat Back lets the reader come to their own conclusions about the fate of a meddling woodlands creature. In so doing, Jon Klassen demonstrates how subversiveness and open-ended storytelling can absolutely resonate with children if handled smartly. If you haven't experienced a live listening and reading of this book with a classroom of kids, you're missing out—especially regarding the inevitable, lively debate that's sure to ensue when the story is finished. (This audio experience should absolutely be paired with the physical book for maximum enjoyment.)
