Chris Haughton books

Any one of Chris Haughton’s books, if not all of them should grace everyone’s bookshelves. Ssh! We Have a Plan is awesome and A Bit Lost is just the sweetest. I can’t wait to read his latest, Goodnight Everyone. I’m delighted Chris has shared his favourites with us today …

1) That is Not my Hat by Jon Klassen.  A book with dark black humour but very funny.
