Synopsis

The Coat by Julie Hunt

WINNER: CBCA Picture Book of the Year, 2013 The 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
