Waiting on Wednesday: We Found a Hat by Jon Klassen

WoW is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we share the titles we can't wait to release.

We Found a Hat by Jon Klassen. 56 p. Candlewick Press, October 11, 2016. 9780763656003

Publisher synopsis: Hold on to your hats for the conclusion of the celebrated hat trilogy by Caldecott Medalist Jon Klassen, who gives his deadpan finale a surprising new twist.

Two turtles have found a hat. The hat looks good on both of them. But there are two turtles. And there is only one hat. . . . Evoking hilarity and sympathy, the shifting eyes tell the tale in this brilliantly paced story in three parts, highlighting Jon Klassen’s visual comedy and deceptive simplicity. The delicious buildup takes an unexpected turn that is sure to please loyal fans and newcomers alike.

Oh man, I am such a fan of Klassen's and am so looking forward to this. I really enjoyed I Want My Hat Back and This is Not My Hat. But I must say, after hearing him talk about both books at an NCTE luncheon, I love them even more.
