'I Want My Hat Back’ by Jon Klassen

 

This story is funny tale about a bear who can’t find his red hat. He embarks on a hunt for it and as he searches, he patiently and politely asks the animals of the wood if they’ve seen it. As the bear begins to think he has lost his hat forever, he is asked a question which sparks his memory and makes him realise he has been lied to by the rabbit! The story takes a slightly mischievous turn when the bear appears to have eaten the rabbit (and yet denies any knowledge of its whereabouts!). This version of the classic repetitive tale uses simple wording and playfully demonstrates that being dishonest can have consequences.
