Reviews

What a fine book it is...The story is funny and has a twist at the end that would be interesting to explore with a young child. -- Clare Poole * The Bookseller *
magnificent ... beautifully put together ... it has a twisted, almost British sense of humor to it... A great little book. * School Library Journal *
delectable * Publishers Weekly *
Using a simple dialogue and subtle colour changes the author shows children how to work out what has happened. -- Marilyn Brocklehurst * The Bookseller *
This is deadpan humour at its best, with a wickedly dark twist that draws bear himself in to telling a lie...This is a fabulously original and wry tale by a rising talent, giving an intriguing insight in to fibbing * Nursery World *
This is the first picture book to be both written and illustrated by the clever and ever-so quirky Jon Klassen . . . The different animal responses make the book perfect for reading aloud: it's one adults will love as much as children * We Love This Book *
Delicious deadpan humour with Klassen's muted, distinctive illustration and a splash of dramatic colour make this highly original book a joy from start to finish -- Sally Morris * Daily Mail *
Jon Klassen's story is told completely in cleverly repetitious dialogue; the illustrations are full of subtle humour and the unexpected ending is a stroke of genius. * The Scotsman *
There's a trend in children's books now or sophisticated humour, ace illustrations a wry take on life. Klassen's I Want my Hat Back fits neatly into the genre....parents and grandparents will have a chuckle while reading it at bedtime for the 100th time. * Belfast Telegraph *
Lifts the picture book to real art form * The Big Issue *
The best picture books, like the best poetry, show the brilliance of simplicity, and this is one of these. * The Big Issue *
