The Yellow Coat | Christina Montano


Inspired by a true story and beautifully illustrated by Adé Van Duyn, this picture book features large colorful pictures that include amusing depictions of the family cat, as well as those of a curious little mouse.

In the story, the boy loves his yellow coat so much that he takes it off only when he goes to bed.

One night he has a strange dream and awakens to discover that his mother is downstairs at her sewing machine, altering the coat to fit his growing body.
