    Julie Hunt's whimsical writing combines beautifully with Ron Brooks' artwork in this gorgeous story of a coat that feels it is being wasted as a scarecrow. A book for adults as well as children.

    This book really irked me. Even the kids that I have read to hate the book. With a couple of exceptions who liked it just for the illustrations.It was horrible to read, as the scrawly writing blended into the background and there was not even the minutest amount of sense. Just because it is a children's story does not mean there should not be unexplained inconsistencies. Why did he accept the coat talking without a second thought but everyone else was like "HE'S A VENTRILOQUIST"? And why did HE [...]

    Wow, what a beautiful story! The text and illustrations work together in a gorgeous way to describe a magical coat that is offended just sitting out in the middle of a field and the magical experience a human has when he decides to go and put the coat on. I loved the fantasy element of this story and was drawn to all the illustrations. I look forward to finding more books in my new library created by both the author and illustrator!

    An unusual book, a redemptive story. While the cursive font looks pretty I'm not sure that it works all that well in a picture book. astrongbeliefinwicker

    The illustrations and design of this book are beautiful. But the cursive font is disorienting and difficult to read. Consequently, I did not read the story itself, which I am sure was as beautiful as the illustrations.

    Imaginitive, nice illustrations, and a sort of otherworldly feel. I found it somewhat dull, but it could be some introverted kid's nice escape on a rainy day. The kids in my classes didn't care too much for it.
