Another gem by Jon Klassen!

The loveliest ending possible to this fantastic series!

Klassen graciously gifts us with one more hilarious hat-centric conflict, this time featuring two turtles who discover one ten gallon hat. Being smart individuals, the turtles decide to do the sensible thing, one hat can't be worn by both, so it's better to leave it they think. But one turtle can't stop thinking about it. He wants it. He needs it. He creeps towards it while the other sleeps. However it is this other which ultimately gives him pause. Once again Klassen uses contrasting text and images to tickle our expectations. However, this time he further impresses by deviating from a pattern which he established in the previous two books. His concise, edgy text, composition, minimalistic art, and limited set of earthy hues combine into a perfectly paced and pitched work. We Found a Hat foregoes the darkly humourous ending of the others by acknowledging that people are not just made of selfish impulses, but conscientious ones as well. This is a truly fitting end to a trilogy that is sure to become a modern classic.

This is a great addition to Klassen's hat series. Klassen once again uses a hat as the conflict a story about friendship. Perfectly acceptable for all ages, even the very young. A very universal tale. Very readable and good for bedtime or storytime.

I'm a huge fan of Jon Klassen's hat books and this is a wonderful way to end the series. This one is much friendlier than the other two (spoiler alert: nothing bad happens to anyone - I know some people don't love the endings for the first two books) but has the same wit. I particularly loved some of the more surreal dialog exchanges (Turtle 1: Are you asleep? Turtle 2: Yes, I am asleep. I am dreaming.) Definitely give this one a go, even if you didn't love the other hat books.
