Synopsis

The Coat by Julie Hunt

WINNER: CBCA Picture Book of the Year, 2013The Coat stood in a paddock at the end of a row of strawberries. It was buttoned up tight and stuffed full of straw and it was angry. 'What a waste of me!' it yelled. Then along came a man. 'I could do with a coat like that,' the man said. Together, swooping and swinging, they travelled to the Cafe Delitzia, and had the night of their lives.A bold and original picture book.

Reviews

This vigorous yet dreamlike Australian picture-book collaboration between Julie Hunt and illustrator Ron Brooks suggests the beauty, and urgency, of pursuing a vigorous and zestful life. Wall Street Journal
