We Found a Hat

What happens when you and your friend find a hat that looks good on both of you but there is only one hat and two of you? Two desert turtles encounter just such a predicament in We Found a Hat by Jon Klassen. Our shelled protagonists decide that leaving the hat where they found it is probably the best course of action given their circumstances; however, one of our turtle friends clearly wants a hat that looks good on them and might be having second thoughts about their abandoned discovery. Told through Klassen’s distinct minimalist humor and style, We Found a Hat is a silly yet enriching tale of navigating and coming to terms with a tricky situation.

We Found a Hat

Two turtles find a hat that looks good on both of them, but, with fairness in mind, they decide to leave it be, until night falls and one of the turtles changes its mind.
