July 2012 Indie Next List
“Like Marilynne Robinson's Home was to Gilead, this is the other side of a beloved story -- but with a lot more giggles. Klassen's deadpan fishies reimagine the plot of I Want My Hat Back from the perspective of the hat stealer, and the results are just as suspenseful, adorable, and laugh-inducing for kids and adults alike. Though parents will have to get creative once again to explain the darkly hilarious ending to little ones, this is a book that everyone is going to want to read over and over again!”
