The Rock from the Sky

By Jon Klassen
Illustrated by Jon Klassen

Look up! From the Caldecott Medal-winning creator of the Hat trilogy comes a new deadpan gem.

Turtle really likes standing in his favourite spot. He likes it so much that he asks his friend Armadillo to come over and stand in it, too. But now that Armadillo is standing in that spot, he has a bad feeling about it... A hilarious meditation on the workings of friendship, fate, shared futuristic visions, and that funny feeling you get that there’s something off somewhere, but you just can’t put your finger on it. Merging broad visual suspense with wry wit and existential silliness, celebrated picture-book creator Jon Klassen gives us a wholly original comedy for the ages.

  • The first book from Jon Klassen since his internationally acclaimed and bestselling Hat trilogy.
  • The Hat trilogy has sold 1.9 million copies and counting. This Is Not My Hat is the only book to ever win both the Kate Greenaway and Caldecott Medal.
  • This is a longer extent picture book divided into five chapters, like five acts in a play.
