Book Description

9 Oct 2012
When a tiny fish shoots into view wearing a round blue top hat (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 as though he’ll ever know what happened, will he. Visual humour swims to the fore as the bestselling Jon Klassen follows his break-out debut with another deadpan-funny tale.

We own this author's first book (I Want My Hat) - which is so brilliant I couldn't wait to buy his next book. My son recently complained that too many of books were "the same". He wanted something truly unique and that is how we found Jon Klassen. I must point out though, that the black humour in these books may not appeal to all children - and in fact may upset some. I would advise parents to read this on thier own before sitting down to storytime.

This story is about a small fish who steals a hat from a much larger fish. He is quite pleased with himself, gloating about how he will get away with his crime - but crime doesn't pay and tiny fish should not antagonise big ones. Tiny fish swims through blackened ocean happily talking to himself about how big fish will never know what happened, will never find him etc.... All the while big fish is swimming behind getting closer and closer. I will not give away the ending - but I will say it might upset some children. However, the unhappy parts are not actually shown, they are simply implied by illustration so you can easily craft your own happier ending.

This has an absolutely delightful deadpan humour. My children are ages 4 and 7, and although my 7 year old rarely reads picture books anymore, he did enjoy this - and I have to admit - so did I. The illustrations are striking as well. I very much like the black water as opposed to traditional blue. It adds to the uniqueness of this book. It also a nice book to discuss the morality of taking things that do not belong to you with children.

But in addition to being a brilliant story certain to entice reluctant readers, this book, is a wonderful resource for reading instruction. The early readers by Dr Seuss were limited to 250 words.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great book from Jon Klassen 15 Dec 2012
By Kat C
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was given Hat Back as a gift for my daughter (age 2) last Christmas and it was an instant hit with her. I saw this book and instantly ordered it knowing it would go down well. They are not your average bedtime storybooks, they are tales with sticky endings, and amusing twists.
A small fish thinks he can get away with stealing the hat belonging to a much bigger fish....does he? You'll have to buy it and see...
A lovely story with a moral easily understood by preschoolers along with beautiful illustrations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book 10 Feb 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is as good as the author's other book. The pictures are great and if you've read the first one you'll guess where this one is heading early on but kids like that. Recommend most highly but buy 'I want my hat back' first. You won't be sorry, it's a gem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 10 Feb 2013
Format:Hardcover
A little companion piece that complements Klassen's previous book rather nicely. Wonderfully illustrated, and any little monster will love how this darkly humorous tale turns out.

Brilliant little story for teaching children about the dangers of stealing. Highly recommended.

...but I was wrong! I love this book more than the children and often suggest we read it together (for my benefit!). It is original, subtle and absolutely hilarious.

We are looking forward to the author's next book. This one and I Want My Hat Back are just great. Although they are picture books, the subtle humour should appeal to any age.
