A New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book of 2011

A picture-book delight by a rising talent tells a cumulative tale with a mischievous twist.

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. Told completely in dialogue, this delicious take on the classic repetitive tale plays out in sly illustrations laced with visual humor-- and winks at the reader with a wry irreverence that will have kids of all ages thrilled to be in on the joke.

   Beautiful and twisted
A beautiful piece of work, an excellent and twisted sense of humor, yet still holds the attention of our 14 month old. I'm a huge fan of books that don't talk to everybody. I am very pleased with the outcome of this year's Emmys, said Bob Baity, executive vice president of CBS Television.

   My 6 year old and I were laughing hard!
The book is also full of witty observations about life. I love the pictures, the characters and the book, Rowling said. A bear's hat goes missing and he goes around asking all the forest creatures if they have seen it. He asks a rabbit, who is wearing the stolen hat, if he has seen his hat and the rabbit lies. Realizing the rabbit did steal his hat, the bear follows suit. It also suggests the bear ate the rabbit and got his hat back, the book says. If you are a super conservative parent you probably won't like this book because it promotes revenge, but we thought it was pretty hilarious, even if your kid didn't read it. If anything get it for the pictures..

   This book caught us by surprise. Grabbed it from ...
It caught us by surprise that this book was even being published. She said she couldn't get to it because the printer had left it at the library. It was time to take it back, I decided to read it to the kids. It was a total mockery of justice, a parody, and all three of us laughed so hard I had to buy the book.

   I own this book... and we don't even have kids.
This book has become a must-have for our family. My sister bought it for her two young kids, and after reading it we bought a copy for our home. It quietly replaced some stupid grown-up fine art or architecture coffee book table and now we have a giggle at it all the time.

   there is no literature in this tale. Lack of creativity.
I'm not a big fan of Gillian Flynn's books. It's just that I couldn't understand its point. What do children learn from this book? The Punisher is back, this time with a vengeance. Do you think that by doing so, you did to others the same as they did to you? I lost all my money on this book.

   Sending it back
The animal, apparently upset that the rabbit stole his hat, then ate him. This is a terrible story for anyone, especially children. I'm not sure what kind of warped mind gave this book an award, he said. I'm returning it and will not buy this book again.

   What now??!!
It's just that nasty, right? I would not have read this to a child. He loses, or has stolen, his hat. The boy goes about asking. He also denied that he ever wore a hat. After the other rabbit, Bear continues, "claims that Rabbit stole it, and then that's all for Rabbit." This one left a bad taste in my mouth, which is sort of like raw rabbit. The book got high praise and awards, but there's something really mean-spirited about it, and I wouldn't want to have this in a child's library, Tunick said.

   One of my favorite kids books, as an educator
Jon Klassen brings us this story of a boy who wants to be a fireman. This story will be enjoyed by children and adults alike. It's one in a series, and I recommend getting all of the Hat books for some humor!

   Missed the return deadline
If I had been paying attention, I would have returned the book. Because he took a hat off, he was also ejected. In the video, the bear is seen asking various animals if they have seen his hat. No one has caught the bear, but the rabbit is wearing the hat that the bear is looking for. When the bear charged, the rabbit says he hasn't seen the beast but has not stolen it. No longer in the book. One of the rescuers tells the bear not to eat a rabbit. [He] did, Mr. Rule told the judge. I will not keep the book, but I really don't want to give it to anyone else. Sad that an award-winning children's book promotes revenge and murder, Childers said. What are we here to do with all this technology?

   Entertaining Children's Book
This is a great book that children love to read. I read this book to my 1st grade students and there was always 100% engagement. They can't hold back when they see the rabbit wearing the bear's hat, and they all chime in unison. It's not just for kids but for adults too. The ending is a big surprise and lends itself to a certain amount of discussion as to what exactly happened there.
