it was amazing
Read in November, 2011

A bear has lost his hat. He questions animal passersby about his hat. He suddenly remember that the rabbit is wearing his hat. The end of the story leaves readers with some questions about how the hat was returned.

“Have you seen my hat?

No. I haven’t seen your hat.

OK. Thank you anyway.

Have you seen my hat?

No. I have not seen any hats around here.

OK. Thank you anyway.”

Much in little. Simple text. Simple illustrations. Seems to reflect the true nature of bears somehow.

Bear can’t find his hat. He questions passing animals, including a rabbit with a red triangular hat on his head. No one knows where the hat has gone. Finally, Bear realizes Rabbit has his hat. Bear gets his hat back from Rabbit, but we do not know exactly how Bear got it back.

“Excuse me, have you seen a rabbit wearing a hat?

“No. Why are you asking me. I haven’t seen him. I haven’t seen any rabbits anywhere. I would not eat a rabbit. Don’t ask me any more questions.

OK. Thank you anyway.”
