This book is about a little fish who steals a hat from a big fish while he is sleeping. He thinks he will escape and not get caught. This is an excellent book for beginning readers because it contains many sight words. This book would be best suited for younger students. ( )

This book is great for Kinder to 2nd grade. In this book there is a little thief, a fish, that steals a hat from an even larger fish. As he goes of with the hat other witnesses tell the fish that they would not give away which way it went. However, he finds that they know which way he took of with the hat. ( )

This book is about a small fish who has taken a bigger fish's hat and the big fish is looking for it. The small fish decides that he will hid in some seaweed and the big fish catches him to get his hat back after a long journey through the ocean asking who has his hat. This book is great to teach manners as well as consequences and that are actions have a reaction. ( )

This book is about a little fish who decides to steal a hat. It's humorous and also teaches a life lesson. The pictures on the aren't as colorful but more of a dull background. ( )

Book description
Lawson/LIB 428 desc. --The extraordinary, simple, yet extravagant illustration coupled with the sort of twist/mystery plotline in the book when the fish go out of sight make this book such a fun and amazign read for children. Children and adults will likely appreciate the amazing artwork and design in this story but it's a double threat with the fun/humorous storyline and loveable characterization as the little fish has stolen a big fish's hat and swims along sort of bragging about it unknowingly being chased by the big fish until they reach seaweed and dip behind it, and only the big fish emerges, leaving the reader to assume what happened to the other. This book is incredible and should not be missed.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0763655996, Hardcover)

Amazon Best Books of the Year 2012: Jon Klassen first surprised readers with his runaway best seller, I Want My Hat Back, and his follow-up, This Is Not My Hat is an inside out version that is even more fun. Not only did Klassen go with a dark color scheme where the last was light, the action takes place underwater with much of the story told through the expressive illustrations of sea creatures. From the little fish who steals a bowler hat to the crab who sells him out with eyeballs pointing the way, there are lots of laughs along with lessons. This time Klassen created an ambiguous ending that invites lively conversation about the possible outcomes and ultimately leaves it up to the child to decide the little fish's fate with every reading. --Seira Wilson
