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.
