The Coat

CBCA 2013 Award Winner

The Coat is a picture book that takes its reader on an unexpected journey, a delightful one.

Julie Hunt pens the enchanting story of a coat which stands alone in the middle of the paddock, “it was angry” for guarding a patch of strawberries really was “an incredible waste!”

When a “disappointed” man notices the coat his decision to wear it leads to a magical transformation as an unusual partnership begins to flourish.

Ron Brooks’ hypnotising illustrations, specifically the emergence of vibrant colours from sepia tones, add to the magical tone of Julie Hunt’s lyrical text.

The Coat has many layers and will easily survive many readings!

Notes for Teachers, from Allen & Unwin, can be found here (PDF).

The Essentials

Publisher Blurb
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.
