We Found a Hat by Jon Klassen Book Trailer!

Two turtles have found a hat.

The hat looks good on both of them.

But there are two turtles. And there is only one hat...

We are delighted to share the beautiful book trailer for We Found a Hat,

the third title in Jon Klassen's acclaimed Hat series.

'Jon is [...] the master of deadpan comedy and devastating comic timing. An absolute joy.'
The Irish Independent

To celebrate the upcoming publication of We Found a Hat, Jon was interviewed by the Wall Street Journal. When asked Why Hats? ...

Jon: A hat isn’t a necessary object. It’s not money or food, where you can justify things you might do for it. It’s just about people wanting this thing they have affection for. With this third book, the hat is too big on the two characters kind of on purpose. These characters are so sweet to each other most of the time, and they have this impulse to do this [hurtful] thing to each other, but it’s almost like the thing that the hat has come to represent is too big on them. This betrayal — or whatever it is that the other creatures have been capable of in the other books — these guys can’t do it to each other. The idea of what the hat has come to mean, they try it on, and it’s almost like kids playing around with props that were meant for a more important play. And also the fact that they themselves have made this universe where as far as they’re concerned, it looks really great on them. And that’s all that matters. No one’s going to come along and tell them it’s too big on them. They think it’s the best thing they’ve ever seen.
