I Want My Hat Back - Jon Klassen



I Want My Hat Back by Jon Klassen is one of the most clever picture books and one of my current favourites. It is also one of the New York Times Best Illustrated Books of 2011. While the book trailer above certainly does the book justice, you really must read it through to enjoy the whole story -- highly recommended.

A's Crocheted Blanket


This handmade blanket is a big crochet accomplishment by one of my best friends. That's a queen-size bed there -- hours and hours of crochet time to make that! Congrats, A!
