Happy Weekend and I Want My Hat Back

Happy weekend! I hope it's cozy and full of family time.
This morning I had breakfast and a browse at our local bookstore. What a treat. I happened to pick up what turned out to be the best children's picture book I've found in a while: I Want My Hat Back by Jon Klassen...
The sweet, funny illustrations drew me in, but the story -- dryly, darkly hilarious -- was the kicker. It's home with us now, the newest addition to the library. Today I've found the New York Times book review, Klassen's tumblr, and a fun interview with him here. Definitely buy this one for your little one... or for yourself.

beautiful!:))) I'm addicted to buying children books-because of the pictures, but not only :))
Those illustrations are great and they remind me of this Russian animation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIOtpiPaCU8
