This Is Not My Hat

By Jon Klassen
Illustrated by Jon Klassen

A sneaky fish learns a lesson in crime and punishment in the bestselling, multiple award-winning sequel to I Want My Hat Back.

Winner of the Caldecott Medal and Kate Greenaway Medal 2014 From the creator of the bestselling I Want My Hat Back and Sam and Dave Dig a Hole comes the story of a tiny fish who proudly wears a blue hat. It fits him perfectly. Problem is, trouble could be following close behind... So it's a good thing that the enormous fish he took it from won't wake up. And even if he does, it's not as though he'll ever know what happened, right? With so many emotions conveyed in just the glint of an eye, visual humour swims to the fore in this thrillingly original, perfectly-paced cautionary tale.

  • A second thought-provoking musing on the nature of crime and punishment.
  • Longlisted for the 2014 CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal.
  • "as funny and minimalist as its predecessor" - Guardian
