This Is Not My Hat - Jon Klassen

This Is Not My Hat (Candlewick, $15.99), a tiny fish proudly declares. In Jon Klassen’s companion to his runaway hit I Want My Hat Back, we follow our little friend with a big attitude as he swims along in a vast, dark sea. This unimposing denizen of the deep gleefully recounts how he stole the hat he’s wearing from a much bigger fish (after all, the hat fits the little fish much better). He’s sure he’s gotten away with his crime—but has he? Klassen’s spot-on illustrations provide the most hilarious example of dramatic irony ever known to emerge from the ocean. Ages 5 and up. JLM

Boot & Shoe - Marla Frazee

Boot & Shoe (Beach Lane, $16.99) are adorably identical dogs. They like to do most things à deux, but when it comes to sitting outside Boot prefers the back porch and Shoe prefers the front. It’s the perfect arrangement— until the fateful day when a squirrel scurries up to the house. This sassy critter inspires a full-on chase that, when the dust has settled, finds each dog sitting on the other’s favorite porch. When Boot decides to wait for Shoe to appear and vice versa, a stalemate begins. Will they ever find each other? Find out in Marla Frazee’s quirky, sweet tale. Ages 4-7. JLM
