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.
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.
