The Unforgotten Coat

One of the first children’s’ books I read as an adult, that I really just read for myself! The Unforgotten Coat is laugh out loud funny; try keeping a straight face whilst reading about two Mongolian lads learning Liverpudlian Scouse’. Julia caringly seeks to guide these two class mates through their new home of Bootle, and the Polaroid photos in the book will make you feel like you are on that same journey. This book is a powerfully moving account of the experience and effects of immigration, perceived through the eyes of a child, and is perhaps even more important today than when it was first published five years ago.
