This is a fantasy story about a bear who loses his hat. He goes around asking other animals (overlooking one suspicious rabbit wearing a red hat), but he can't seem to find it until...he remembers who took his hat! Klaassen uses his dry sense of humor and simple illustrations to kick off his hat trilogy.

I enjoyed the illustrations in this book but found the story lacking a little. I don't think the lesson was very good in the end. A bear lost his hat, he searches for the hat, finds a rabbit who is wearing his hat and accuses them of stealing it. Then he eats the rabbit. I know it's supposed to be lighter that that, I'm sure the kids get a kick out of when the rabbit appears with the hat, but I like stories with a lesson to learn from them, instead of two wrongs making a right.

This is a story about a bear who lost his hat, he ask all of his friends if they know where his hat is, but they all say no, even the rabbit, that did steal the hat. This is such an awesome book to have students predict, and not only that, but it can also be used to discuss what it means to steal and lie. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0763655988, Hardcover)

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.

A bear almost gives up his search for his missing hat until he remembers something important.
