Book Trailer Thursday: We Found a Hat

The third of Klassen’s hat-related romps, We Found a Hat (Candlewick) homes in on the dusky desert, two turtles, and one particularly flattering cowboy hat. Sure, the trailer—aptly accompanied by Burl Ives’ rendition of “Home on the Range”—is streaked with stars, cacti, and delightfully deadpan humor, but, like the book, it’s also laced with just a touch of potential treachery. Who will wear the hat? We aren’t telling, but one thing’s for sure: this turtle toe-to-toe (claw-to-claw?) is not to be missed.

For other hilarious hat ventures, check out Klassen’s I Want My Hat Back, published in 2011, and This Is Not My Hat, a 2013 Caldecott winner (and its trailer!).
