This is Not My Hat

This book by Jon Klassen is the story of a cunning thief of a fish that steals another fishes hat. He is proud of what he has done and goes around screaming that “This is not my hat.” Little does he know that the owner is  right on his trail…

Visual Element: Shape. The author uses very unique shapes for the fish and the hat to create a fun and easy to follow book

Evaluative Criteria: Plot. The plot is a fish that took another fishes hat and is running (or swimming) away so the other fish doesn’t get his hat. A simple plot that just works.
