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!

A lot of books are set up in a traditional novel style, but others use letters and notes to tell the story instead. This can be a really fun way to read and get to know the characters. It may even spur an interest in writing some letters yourself! I’m sure a friend would love to read the story of your days in a letter just for them!
Halloween is over, but if you are still looking for something scary, check out the Lockwood & Co. series by Jonathan Stroud. I just finished listening to the third and newest book in the series, which follows Lucy Carlyle, Anthony Lockwood, and George Cubbins as they work together to hunt ghosts around London. Thrilling, engaging, and humorous, I can't wait for book number four!
