The Boy in the Orange Cape

Every day, Corey wears a cape to school, and every day, Billy, the school bully, takes his cape away. When a curious classmate asks Corey why he persists, he is so inspired by Corey’s answer that a trend begins: now everyone wears capes! Encouraging forgiveness and celebrating strength in numbers, this cheerful book’s illustrations include surreal touches (the children are children-sized, but their faces are those of various cuddly animals) and muted colors, easing the audience into their messages.
