JON KLASSEN launches his new children's book WE FOUND A HAT

We Found a Hat (Candlewick Press)

Hold on to your hats for the conclusion of the celebrated hat trilogy by Caldecott Medalist Jon Klassen.

Two turtles have found a hat. The hat looks good on both of them. But there are two turtles, and there is only one hat. . . . Evoking hilarity and sympathy, the shifting yes tell the tale in this brilliantly paced story in three parts, highlighting Jon Klassen’s visual comedy and deceptive simplicity.

The delicious buildup takes an unexpected turn that is sure to please loyal fans and newcomers alike.

Praise for We Found A Hat

*“In this concluding volume of a thematic trilogy, Klassen employs all his trademark dry wit and deadpan humor to tell the story of a hat-related caper. . . . The conclusion might surprise even those familiar with Klassen’s twist endings, and the growing tensions, simple narrative, and  intriguing details will endear this to many.” – Booklist (starred review)
 
*“Readers who think they know what's coming will be wrong... Instead, Klassen considers the instant at which a decision to act can break either way, depending on who's tempted and whether anyone else is watching. In contrast to the first two books, which relied on a certain conspiratorial menace, this one ends with a moment of grace and a sky full of stars. All three stories are about justice. It's just that justice doesn't always mean the same thing.” – Publishers Weekly (starred review)
 
*“A different but wholly delightful and thought-provoking capper to Klassen’s ingenious series.” – School Library Journal (starred review)
 
*“The tenderness in this book (with its uplifting ending) is just as surprising  as the black humor in the earlier ones. While the book is richer in the context of the two previous volumes, Klassen leaves enough space for uninitiated readers to make their own meaning out of this story about a hat—but, here, also about an enduring and precious friendship.” – The Horn Book (starred review)
