It is the illustrations as much as the text that really does this for me. The small fish has stolen a hat. It is probably a good thing that the crab won’t say where the little fish has gone, should the big fish wake up…

This is as much a piece of artwork as a wonderful fishy tale. Sublime.

Jon Klassen  puts expression in art work that would seem to be potato printing (but obviously isn’t) – this is by far his best – but do look out for the others…all about hats… This one is a landscape volume – which reflects the chase that is so integral to the story. Magic.
