appealing as much to adults as children

the silence of the last page is deafening, and this book will encourage lots of conversation in the classroom

this book will have youngsters questioning what actually happening, and invites the reader to look again

Thrillingly original and subtle in its approach to storytelling
*We Love This Book*

A cautionary tale told through subversive and sumptuously illustrated visual humour
*CBI recommended reads of 2012*

This is perfectly pared-down storytelling which builds the tension and the outrageous denouement with exquisite timing. (Librarian’s choice)
*Reading Zone*

I will only say that Klassen cleverly covers theft, suspicion, crime, punishment, guilt and death without using a single word.
*Inis magazine*

This is as funny and minimalist as its predecessor.
*The Guardian*

Glorious illustrations convey a wide range of emotions in the glint of an eye and the moral is a good talking point.
*Daily Mail*

Lends itself to many retellings
*Irish Times*

Certain to be a bestseller.
*The Bookseller*

Elegant books
*Wall Street Journal*

A submarine tale of hubris and death. All great picture books – Where the Wild Things Are, The Tiger Who Came To Tea, The Gruffalo – have their moments of darkness. But nothing as dark as the ending of this masterpiece. It has the world’s funniest ever drawing of a crab pointing
*The New Review, Observer*

Jon Klassen’s classy formalised illustrations, with their limited palette of black and autumnal colours, instantly win fans with every book. His humour, here, is also black. . . Klassen’s expression and design are minimal, but nevertheless there is character and narrative drive, suspense, menace, morality and a twist.
*The Sunday Times*

Winsome tale of rough justice
*Sunday Telegraph*

A terrific story
*S Magazine*

One of the funniest books of the year

Another funny tale from bestselling Jon Klassen
*Woman’s Way*

Jon Klassen strikes gold again with this hilarious follow-up to I Want My Hat Back.
