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!
