We Found a Hat by Jon Klassen
Published by Walker Books
The third in Klassen’s Hat series, We Found a Hat adheres to the simplistic, yet powerful, written and illustrative style of the two previous Hat book. Children, and their ever faithful reading adults, will delight in the text and illustrations of this high art picture book.
The book is written in three parts, exposing children to the structure of stories. These parts further the journey of the two characters, and their trials and tribulations in finding one hat for two friends.
This is a tale that explores themes of friendship, sharing and caring, discovery, dreaming, and the possibilities available to those who need to discover these possibilities without outside assistance.
The illustrations are fit for framing and display on walls all throughout the world. Klassen’s unsophisticated style of text and images adequately tell the tale, yet leaves room for the reader to imagine more details to the story.
This is a book that will delight all the generations that share this book as family, friends, or carers.
Congratulations to Klassen! And the only bad thing about this book is that it is the end of the Hat series.
