I only like this one slightly more than "I Want my Hat Back." At least it doesn't have a disturbing all red page. Still: steal something, get eaten?

What better way to describe this than with the text inside the front cover? "A fish has stolen a hat. And he'll probably get away with it. Probably." This is so simple and funny, and my son LOVED being able to anticipate what was going to happen next from the fish's mistaken beliefs, once he caught on to the pattern. Klassen is a gem in the world of children's books.

The small fish is certain that the large fish is clueless about his hat. Once the big fish finds the little fish, the illustrations make the reader question the whereabouts or the demise of the small fish. I read this book to my son – who is too cool to read picture books. He admitted that the big fish’s eyes and the wordless crab’s expressions made him chuckle.

Everyone, no matter how old or young, should read the "hat books" by Klassen. Worth the time, priceless illustrations (which tell a good portion of the story).

Another great one from Jon Klassen. The whole time the kids were anticipating the outcome and were not disappointed. So subtle yet so funny!

A very clever and funny book that does a lot with very little text and big evocative illustrations.
