Book of the Week - Wo ist mein hut?
It's funny how different book titles
can be when translated into German, for instance Jon Klassen's book
'I want my hat back' has become Where is my hat? (Wo ist mein hut?)
But I actually think this is a better title in this case. Because the
bear travels through the book not knowing where his hat is. It's got
a great little twist in the end and has a couple of animals throwing
a wobbler for no reason, much as a toddler does, of course (although
to them of course, there is always a reason) Perfect for an adult learning German like me and the simple
illustrations are refreshingly understated, enhancing the comedy in
this book. Both of my girls, aged 6 and 9 loved it.
