Reviews & Summaries
This story is very sweet. I remember enjoying it as a child so I was excited to share it with my child. He loved it just as much as I do! It is a cute story with a good message, "you can always make something out of nothing." My child loved the cut-outs in each page as the overcoat gets smaller and smaller.
