WINNER OF THE 2013 CALDECOTT MEDAL!

From the creator of the #1 New York Times best-selling and award-winning I Want My Hat Back comes a second wry tale.


When a tiny fish shoots into view wearing a round blue topper (which happens to fit him perfectly), trouble could be following close behind. So it’s a good thing that enormous fish won’t wake up. And even if he does, it’s not like he’ll ever know what happened. . . . Visual humor swims to the fore as the best-selling Jon Klassen follows his breakout debut with another deadpan-funny tale.

    This was my favourite book of all the Blue Spruce nominees this year. I love the illustrations, it is very funny and I think the ending is great. I would recommend it to anyone who likes funny picture books.

      We read this book for Blue Spruce and it was my favourite one. The fish is very naughty and I really like the ending. (I won't tell you what happens. I would recommend this to anyone who like Jon Klassen and funny books.
