    The 2013 Caldecott Medal winner is This Is Not My Hat, written and illustrated by Jon Klassen, published by Candlewick Press.In this darkly humorous tale, a tiny fish knows its wrong to steal a hat. It fits him just right. But the big fish wants his hat back. Klassens controlled palette, opposing narratives and subtle cues compel readers to follow the fish and imagine the consequence.With minute changes in eyes and the slightest displacement of seagrass, Klassens masterful illustrations tell the story the narrator doesnt know, Caldecott Chair Sandra Imdieke said (ALA.org).
