Jon Klassen is an artist I have always admired, I just didn’t know it.
Today I accidentally stumbled upon his latest project – a children’s book coming out this fall called “I Want My Hat Back.” Enjoy the adorable trailer here:
The bear’s hat is gone, and he wants it back. Yep, I can just tell this story is going to keep me on the edge of my seat.
I originally found Klassen on my favorite greeting card site. If I’ve ever sent you real mail, chances are it was a Red Cap Cards greeting card. I love em, can’t get enough. Look! I got this one for my husband’s 30th birthday:
I got the card because it’s obviously the best. Turns out it’s a Jon Klassen card.
He’s also responsible for the visual development drawings for Coraline.
Now that I know the artist behind so many of my favorites, “I Want My Hat Back” is at the top of my list of Things I Want to Buy For Your Kids.
Available for pre-order here. I can’t wait for fall!
