Storybooks are special sets of collectibles in A Hat in Time, which are found in special Time Rifts, serving to provide the lore of certain characters, locations or short stories that help to expand the rest of the cast.
Within the multiple levels of any Purple Time Rift or a Community Rift through Death Wish, there are Storybook Pages hidden throughout the stage, often hidden behind objects or off the typical path, rewarding exploration in players.
The quantity of Storage Pages varies between each rift, ranging from as low as five to as many as ten.
Each collected page is presented at the end of the rift, revealing the story being told in the pages. If pages were missed, the remaining missing pages will be heavily blurred. This also means that Storybooks with more collectible pages will present more pages in its presentation.
First level, after a dropoff behind the large treasure chest is a sea star platform with the page on it.
Second level, inside the pink castle leading up to the Rift Pon path with the Lazy Paw Gang and Express Owls.
Second level, next to the multiple Dweller towers surrounded by urchins.
Third level, inside the castle to the right, behind some seaweed and over a pit with a falling platform.
Third level, on top of the castle near the end of one of the Rift Pon path including the multiple rotating platforms and floating urchins. Found inside the chest.
Fourth level, on the backside of the pillar holding a Rift Pon. Position requires the player to fall from the top layer to the middle one holding the page.

Fourth level, found in the covert alcove found on the main land portion of this level, facing the debris part. Inside a chest under the castle's opening.
