The Tiny Womans Coat


A small and cosy book leaving preschoolers snug as a bug, from award-winning author, Joy



The Times Children’s Book of the Week.


The tiny woman makes a coat of leaves with the help of her animal friends. The trees, geese,

porcupine, horse and plants all share something so the tiny woman can snip, snip, snip and

stitch, stitch, stitch a coat to keep herself warm.


Friendship and sharing are at the heart of this warm and simple rhythmic poem by one of the

world’s best children’s writers. A perfectly cosy hardback storybook to read-aloud and share

with babies, toddlers and preschoolers who will delight in everything tiny and small, including

the fresh and funny illustrations by award-winning illustrator Giselle Clarkson.


“Now I have a new favourite cosy read to add to my collection.” — The Times.
