“The funniest book ever written” Jenny Colgan, Guardian “One of the simplest yet most original and entertaining picture books around” Telegraph A New York Times Bestseller and Best Illustrated Book The bear’s hat is gone, and he wants it back. Patiently and politely, he asks the animals he comes across, one by one, whether they have seen it. Each animal says no, some more elaborately than others. But just as the bear begins to despond, a deer comes by and asks a simple question that sparks the bear’s memory and renews his search with a vengeance...

  • Jon Klassen’s HAT trilogy has sold 1.9+ million copies to date. This Is Not My Hat is currently the only book to win both the Kate Greenaway and Caldecott Medal.
  • The story was adapted into a stage production in 2015 by the National Theatre and was met to critical acclaim.
  • "This is an author-illustrator who takes you from page to page with a dry humour which matches his story perfectly" Shirley Hughes
