Wayne Kovak loves facts and he happily shares them with everyone around him, that is until he loses his voice.  Wayne and his mother are traveling back from his Uncle's funeral when their plane crash lands in the middle of Texas.  Wayne's voice is not the only thing lost; his uncle had served in the U.S. military and during the crash Wayne lost the American flag his family was awarded at his funeral.  Determined to find the flag, and bring his grieving grandfather and mother some peace, he sets out on a journey that helps him discover things he didn't even know he was searching for.  

It's Rabbit's birthday and he is having a party with his friends Moose and Porcupine. The cake disappears and all trails lead to Moose and some very disappointing friends.  Moose soon understands that his friends are more important than cake, and he finds a way for everyone to celebrate.

Here's the welcome conclusion to Jon Klassen's “Hat” trilogy.  In this third book, the hat has been found.  The problem is that there are two turtles and only one hat.  It just wouldn't be right if one of them had a hat and the other didn't, so they decide the only thing to do is to forget about the hat.  This turns out to be easier said than done, as you will see when you read this clever book!
