ThisIsNotMyHat_thumbThe 2013 Caldecott Medal winning book is This is Not My Hat by Jon Klassen. Narrated by a fish who is a thief the book leave much to the imagination. The little fish is on the run when he steals a little bowler hat from a really big fish. Unconvinced that what he has done is really wrong the little fish is certain he will get away with his crime. I love this book for it’s dark and mysterious artwork as well as the uncertain ending. It is up to the reader to decide what happened to the little fish.
