I Want My Hat Back by Jon Klassen

Humour Under the Bear’s Hat

Jon Klassen tells a simple story and a joke that readers under eight or over eighteen will be thrilled at. The bear wants his hat back and keeps asking around. The deer throws back a straightforward question of what the hat is like. To everyone’s surprise, it triggers the bear’s awakening, which realises how one of the animals has tricked him. The Canadian storyteller has led us into a search of hat, a little lie and a quiet sense of humour, with his warm colours and crude brushes. Let curiosity get the better of you and find out bear’s next step!
