This book is about a little mean fish who stole a hat from a much larger fish. The little fish kept telling the reader how he would probably get away with his theft and gave various reasons, such as the big fish probably wouldn’t wake up, and probably wouldn’t notice his hat was missing, and probably wouldn’t know who took it and so on. The big fish seemed to know exactly who took his hat and where they were going. He ended up getting his hat back, but what happened to the small fish remained a mystery.
I would recommend this book, but I wish there was more. While I absolutely loved the illustrations, there wasn’t enough to the story. While in the end the big fish got his hat back, he didn’t explain why stealing was wrong, and/or the little fish didn’t even learn a lesson about stealing (or possibly live for that matter). It was a very beautiful book, but I would’ve loved more substance in it.
