“There is someone who saw me already. But he said he wouldn‘t tell anyone which way I went.”
The illustrations are so simple, just showing the large fish and small fish in the dark ocean. The simple pictures made it not too overwhelming to look at.
This Is Not My Hat by Jon Klassen was published in 2012. A fun and silly tale about a little fish who took a bigger fishes hat, but what really wins you over is the illustrations. They tell a different story than the words on the page and show how things can be different depending on your point of view. An award winning story that find a nice place for itself in any classroom.
When the author uses only pictures to convey the large fish‘s displeasure with the situation he is making children think about what the art is trying to say. He is asking children to read artwork instead of words which involves using their imagination and inference skills
