This is a picture book, so I thought it might be of interest for a toddler I didn t read it by myself at first, so I was already a bit taken aback when I read the opening I stole the big fish s hat I understand the reviewers who say that the book is humorous and that the humor is dark I just don t understand who the target reader is I enjoy dark humor, but I m not about to go watch Louis CK with my kid I don t know I returned it because I don t see the purpose of introducing and explaining the concept of theft to my young child I start finding many of these newly awarded books a bit too out there for the actual children It s as if the writers are trying to appeal to the adults who buy and read these books to their kids.

My first grade students loved this book They were really amused how the little fish made little assumptions like, And he probably won t wake up for a long time and the picture would show otherwise the big fish was actually awake This book served as a great mentor text for teaching the strategy of asking questions Using turn Good Readers Ask Questions chart The book is not that long, but make sure you give the children enough time to look closely at the pictures to see how they contradict the main character s thoughts The students came up with lots of questions that were left unanswered after reading which led to a very lively and engaging discussion I highly recommend this book for early primary. Klassen s art is just fabulous and his view of life seems quite quirky My 7 year old daughter and I love him For some reason, this is the last of the hat trilogy for us to read Klassen s comic timing with his illustrations is superb He makes subtle changes to the illustrations that actually create a dramatic and humorous impact We laughed out loud reading this For example, Klassen shows us a large fish that fills 2 pages in profile with his eye closed The little fish has just stolen the big fish s hat while he sleeps but we only see the big fish On the next 2 pages, the little fish is thinking that he probably won t wake up for a long time and at that time we are looking at the same picture of the big fish but with his eye open The next page the little fish thinks that even if he does wake up, he probably won t notice that it s gone and without changing anything in the picture except the big fish s eye we know he notices The big fish s pupil is pointed up toward his head Then on the next page, the little fish thinks that even it he does notice that it s gone, he probably won t know it was me who took it This time Klassen uses the exact same 2 page big fish picture but the fish knowingly narrows his eye Klassen is just genius to convey so much with so little We do not see the little fish until 13 pages into the story although the book is entirely from his perspective.My daughter and I hotly debated the end We know the big fish emerges from the dense plants with his hat back and we no longer hear from the little fish I am firmly in the little fish got eaten camp but my daughter believes he is hiding in shame Such fun regardless I understand why some people think this story is a little dark for small children The ending certainly implies that the small fish met an unfortunate end I chose to fill in my own words where the fish are in the plants The big fish found the little fish and told him it s not ok to take things that don t belong to you The little fish said sorry and gave the hat back Simple as that Also, my 2 year olds don t really understand death at this point, so they can t assume that s what happened to the little fish I wonder if it s mostly pessimistic adults thinking the worst of what s going down in the place where the plants grow close together The illustrations are dark, but very well done My kids liked this book, so that s all that matters to me Me and my husband are always looking for kids books that might not be seen on the traditional family bookshelf This book is THAT book We originally read it in a bookstore with our son and couldn t stop laughing Such a unique book where the words narrate a story but the illustrations say something else completely Yes the end may not be rainbows and butterflies but neither is real life We felt like it had a good moral for our son that for every action comes a consequence We can t wait to share it with our daughter when she gets a bit older Adults and new parents may appreciate it than young kids but eventually they ll get the humor. Stupendo consigliato a tutti gli appassionati di illustrazione L autore un vero genio I colori in questo volume sono molto tetri e quindi poco interessanti per un bambino piccolo Sono pochi i personaggi Il primo volume era di gran lungo migliore La morale della favola la stessa, ma meno evidente.
