Klassen’s inimitable deadpan humour combines with muted pink-and-grey landscapes, black space and soaring stars to create a taut, terse, surprisingly uplifting book. ― The Guardian

Simple language and deceptively simple illustrations make this the kind of bedtime story that children will return to again and again. ― The Irish Times

This is the perfect ending to Jon Klassen’s hat trilogy. We leave some of the darker aspects of the previous two titles behind, but without sacrificing the substance and sheer brilliance of Klassen’s storytelling. The humour, the tension, the shifty eyes, all of Klassen’s trademarks come out in this deadpan yet touching tale of two friends. It’s the ideal story to share with youngsters beginning to learn the nuances of friendship. ― Booktrust
