Synopsis

A bold and original picture book that will lift you off your feet and whirl you away

The Coat stands in a paddock at the end of a row of strawberries. It is buttoned up tight and stuffed full of straw and it is angry. "What a waste of me!" it yells. Then along comes a man. "I could do with a coat like that," the man says. Together, swooping and swinging, they travel to the Cafe Delitzia, where the man finds he has magical talents courtesy of the coat, and together they give the performance of a lifetime.
