Starred Review:

Mr. Coats

A man who is always cold shivers even in his three-stove house; no visitors can stand the heat. Finally fed up, he heads to the shops, piling on coat after coat and earning himself the name Mr. Coats. Now too big to fit in his house, he resigns himself to building a new home within his protective layers—until a surprise introduction thaws his heart. Bright, patterned watercolor illustrations enhance this sweet story about peeling back the layers to discover the warmth of human connection.
