Horn Book editors: What is your favorite style of chapeau and why?

Jon Klassen: A good old-fashioned baseball cap. I wear one all the time, and have since grade school. I can’t say why I like wearing it so much. It keeps me feeling put together, somehow. I’ve tried other kinds of hats, but they never feel right. I’ve been told I look all right in a cowboy hat, but I’m not in a position to start wearing one of those. Maybe someday.

From the September/October 2012 issue of The Horn Book Magazine.
