Author & Illustrator: Jon Klassen
Publisher: Candlewick Press
Publication Year: 2011
Location: Knox County Public Library- Powell
Awards: NYT Best Illustrated
Summary: Bear wants his hat back and he's looking for the thief. He asks each animal if they took the hat, and suddenly he remembers where he saw the hat. He discovers the thief and gets his hat back....and the fate of the thief is up to the reader to decide.
Classroom Ideas: The characters in this book are completely shown through dialogue and illustrations, no direct narration of the story. It would be interesting to get the take of students on the "character" of the characters....
