Staff Reviews

What happens when two turtles find a hat and it looks good on both of them? Naturally, because they’re nice turtles who like to keep things fair, they decide that no one should get the hat. But one of them just can’t keep his mind off it. And therein lies the conflict of Klassen’s latest. With a subtly hilarious plot conveyed mostly through the turtles’ eyes, and gorgeous desert-toned illustrations, this book is sure to become a laugh-out-loud classic for kids of all ages. There are also lots of good lessons to be learned about sharing and friendship.
