Revue de presse

You know, bears may stand for adults in some way, because they're big, they're ungainly, they're goofy. They're like most of us grownups. But the bear in this book paws down; he's got to be the dimmest, most slow-witted, brilliantly stupid bear to come along in years. I really love him.
—NPR Weekend Edition

A marvelous book in the true dictionary sense of "marvel": it is a wonderful and astonishing thing, the kind of book that makes child laugh and adult chuckle, and both smile in appreciation. A charmingly wicked little book.
—The New York Times

Four pages into this charmer, every kindergartner will know where the bear's missing hat is - but they'll never predict the hilarious revenge he takes on the thief.
—People Magazine

Deliberately understated, with delectable results... Skillful characterizations; though they're simply drawn and have little to say, each animal emerges fully realized.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review) --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Relié .

The Proof is in the Faces of Seventeen 2nd Graders 12 octobre 2011
Par R. Gilmore - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I am a 2nd Grade teacher and you can only read Mo Willem's excellent 'Pigeon' books so many times before apathy sets in. When 'I Want My Hat Back' arrived, I took it immediately to school and implanted its delightful message into the brains of my young students.

After reading the tale -- 34 perplexed eyes, cocked in disbelief, greeted me.

"Did that bear...?"
Yes he did, kids...yes he did.

The pace, the art, the whole package is immediately accessible and enjoyable. Subsequent readings of the book have been met with cheers and choral readings of "WAIT! I HAVE SEEN MY HAT!!!"

Jon Klassen has rocketed to the top of my 'Must Buy' list. I can't wait to see what he has in store for us in the future. A classroom full of new fans waits patiently for his next book.

Methinks the woodland creatures doth protest too much 30 septembre 2011
Par E. R. Bird - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I knew it! I knew it, I knew it, I knew it, I knew it, I knew it! When Caroline Stutson's Cats' Night Out was released by Simon & Schuster in 2010 it contained art by an animator going by the moniker of Jon Klassen. And frankly I just thought it contained some of the slickest art I'd seen in a picture book in a long while. I hardly even noticed that he was the same guy behind the pictures found in The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place by Maryrose Wood. Still and all, until now he hadn't illustrated his own book. I was fairly certain he might at some point, and I wasn't sure I'd be looking forward to it. I mean, I thought the man was grand, but could he tell a story? Well, turns out I was right about the fact that his art is magnificent and now, with the release of his first author/illustrator picture book I Want My Hat Back, Klassen shows once and for all that his storytelling talents match his illustration technique pound for pound.

A bear has lost his hat. To find it he questions a variety of woodland creatures including a fox, a frog, a turtle, a possum, a dear, a snake and a rabbit. The rabbit, for the record, refuses to acknowledge having seen the hat in spite of the fact that he appears to be wearing it. And when the bear realizes the true culprit there will be a price to pay. A deeply amusing price. Painted with Chinese ink and digital art, Klassen's book falls into that growing category of subversive picture books out there. What makes it stand out, however, is how beautifully put together it all is.

A criticism leveled at the aforementioned Cats' Night Out involved the expressionless faces of Klassen's kitties. Here you had a book where felines engage in a variety of different dances, yet their faces retain the exact same universal look of deep concentration. I thought it was a hoot. Other folks felt it made the cats too cold and static. So it will be with great interest that I watch the critical reception of I Want My Hat Back. That is because here, being expressionless isn't just the name of the game, it's a comedic technique. Klassen can do more with the set of this bear's head than most artists do with entire bodies. And watch how the eyes work in this book. For most of the spreads the bear and other animals are looking right at you. All that changes the instant the bear lies on the ground, despairing of ever finding his hat again. Now his eyes, and the eyes of the other characters, are looking at one another. It isn't until you get to the final coup de grace that you realize that the bear is looking at you once more.

As I mentioned before, Mr. Klassen is one of those animators-turned-picture-book-artist. Usually when you encounter one of these (like, say, Tony Fucile or Carter Goodrich) their strength lies in the sheer number of expressions they can pack into a given character. Klassen seems to have taken a direct 180-degree turn in the opposite direction. Expressions here are all about the subtleties, but in spite of that you can still tell he has a cinematic background. For example, there is his use of the pregnant pause. At one moment two characters confront one another on a wordless two-page spread and with just the slightest tweak to their pupils, Klassen creates a world of tension. There's also his use of color (a sudden red infusion on a page where the bear realizes where he last saw his hat) and sudden movement. Essentially, this artist has figured out that picture books bear more similarities to short films than any other literary medium (I might make an exception for graphic novels when I say that). The result? He makes the maximum use of the form.

Then there's the language. Klassen utilizes very simple words here, and right from the start the reader is struck by how polite the characters are. Each time the bear finds himself disappointed he offers a quiet "Thank you anyway" and moves along. The turtle too says, "Yes, please" when the bear offers to place him on top of a rock he's been trying to find. Really, only the rabbit is a rude critter here, and we know where rudeness will get you (don't we children?). Aside from the stellar pacing which allows the story to flow seamlessly I also loved Klassen's use of the Rule of Three. We meet two characters that have not seen the bear's hat to establish the storyline, then run smack dab into the sneaky rabbit. It makes it all the funnier when the bear continues his quest, oblivious of the rabbit's incredibly obvious guilt. And so while I haven't tried this book as a readaloud quite yet, I have high hopes. If the adults don't freak out over the ending, of course.

Why would an ending cause parental concern? Well, I don't want to give anything away, but I will say that the book ends with a kind of Emily Gravett/Mini Grey finish. Which is to say, it has a twisted, almost British sense of humor to it. Consider this your official spoiler alert if you like. All set? Okay, so in the last sequence in the book a squirrel inquires after the rabbit and the bear replies with a long, shaken response that pretty much makes it clear as crystal that he ate the offending bunny. This is followed, interestingly enough, by a final silent two-page spread of the bear sitting alone. It's interesting that Klassen preceded that speech with the bear saying, "I love my hat" and doesn't end the book with that statement instead. Still and all, the American consumer is not used to finding devoured bunnies in picture books. The fact that the bear has done so off-screen (as it were) will do little to alleviate tender parental fears. Allow me to point out then that due to Klassen's sophisticated storytelling, small children will not understand the rabbit's fate, while the cannier older ones will not only get the joke but revel in it. When we recommend picture books to four through eight year olds, we rarely see titles that really do span the spectrum. This book is one of the few. Plus I was really amused by how torn up the plants that had been around the rabbit end up when the bear sits contentedly with his hat at the end.

If I were to sum up this picture book in one word I think I would go with this: Deadpan. And deadpan picture books are rare beasts indeed. They can be done (Edward Gorey's work comes to mind) but pulling them off so that they're as appealing to children as they are to adults is no small feat. I think Klassen got away with it here, though. It'll be the wry child that takes to I Want My Hat Back but the world is full of wry youth. So equally consider both the five-year-old in your life as well as the irony-filled college grad when looking for the right gift. Klassen is straddling the market and we end up the winners. A great little book.

For ages 4-8.

This book is special! 18 juin 2012
Par Young Mensan BookParade - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
That was a funny book. My favorite character was the bear. He started off with 'I want my hat back.' And then he looked for it by asking a fox, a frog, a rabbit (who was telling a lie), a turtle, a snake hanging upside down, a mole in a hole, and last a deer. Nobody knew where it was. Then he thought about the rabbit. What the bear did to the bunny to take back his hat was a surprise and a secret. At the end, when a squirrel came, the bear did something a lot like what the rabbit did....

I liked the book because there was a surprise and it was funny.

The whole book was fun to read, and I could read the words by myself. And the funniest part was where the bear started a lie again. The book is special.

All boys of all ages will like this book. I don't know about the girls. I don't know how they feel.

I love it so much!

Use Your Own Judgment and You'll Be Fine 14 janvier 2012
Par Luv2Read2Kids - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
My sons, ages 5 and 7, received this as a Christmas gift. I had never heard of the book before this, so I had no preconceived notions of how good/bad it was and I'm grateful I didn't.

First of all, there is something to be said for the simplicity of the story, the illustrations and the tongue-in-cheek humor that is an undertone throughout this book. My sons both loved the illustrations and the story in general. I did have to reread the end of the book to see if I understood what happened correctly (I did) and explain the ending to my sons. My oldest replied "Well I guess that's what happens when you're a rabbit and a bear." And that, my friends, is the answer to any questions you may have about this book in a nutshell. Bears and rabbits don't always get along in the natural world, especially if you trick a bear. It also opened up a discussion on how wildlife really works, and that alone is a good thing.

Now some reviewers have called the bear a murderer, which is more than a little harsh in my opinion. I mean, don't bears hunt for food? Okay, the rabbit tricks the bear, but does that mean he has to end up with the fate given to him. In children's literature, no. In real life, yes. Take your pick as to how you want the story to go. My sons understood the bear had been tricked or lied to and that he ended up with an unfortunate fate. They weren't traumatized by this, it was just something that happened, something that really does happen.

My bigger concern for the book is regarding the lying. Rabbit lies and gets punished in the end. While harsh, if the story ended there, it would carry, to some degree, a good message about lying and that is has consequences. But the book ends with lies still being taught and so no one really comes away learning a positive lesson. This had me more dismayed than the fate of the rabbit. Why the story ends this way, I have no idea, but again, I'm not sure the author meant for this to be a "lesson" book. He probably sat down, wrote a story about animals he thought was cute and sent it to be published.

The truth is, the story is fine, the illustrations are simple and effective. If you want to pick it apart you can. If you want to read it for what it is - a nice story with some flaws - you can do that too. That's why I gave it three stars. It's really up to the reader and/or the parent to take this book for what it's worth - a teaching opportunity on at least two levels. If you're not up to that, the book will be a huge disappointment. If you are, then it's a fine book to have.

Wickedly wonderful, unlike any fairytale 20 octobre 2012
Par M. Donohoe - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Enough with the people complaining about the "bad message". Just stop it. You're embarrassing yourselves.

You know whats a "bad message"? Such wonderful children's classics like:

Hansel & Gretel - Step-mother leading children into forest to be eaten by animals while inept father agrees.

Cinderella - Being ugly on the outside translates to being mean on the outside. Inept father allows his weak-willed daughter to be abused. Girl is "lucky" enough to have a prince who chooses to marry her.

Jack and the Beanstalk - Boy disobeys his mother, climbs magic plant, discovers giant in castle, steals and ends up killing giant as a result. Returns a hero.

Sleeping Beauty - Girl in coma is sexually assaulted by man

Snow White & Co - Another step-mother (recurring theme) plots to murder daughter. Father absent. Girl breaks into someones home. Agrees to domestic duties to stay in home of the seven men.

And when you really think about it I'm not actually exaggerating that much am I?

I could go on. Be careful what you read and teach to your children. Especially the girls - all the storys seem to end with "and then the man decided to marry her without actually asking for her opinion on the matter but hey, what did she care!".

This on the other-hand is a wonderful book with a great sense of humor and your children will love it. At least it ends with the acknowledgment that the bear wasn't completely innocent.
