A new twist on a Russian masterpiece

In an unnamed city, in an unnamed country, sometime long ago, there lived a poor but talented scrivener named Gogol. Having only an old and patched topcoat, Gogol spends his life savings on a new warm coat for winter. Gogol’s coat is spectacular – everyone is impressed by it – and the poor boy relishes the first few glorious days in his fashionable coat. But late one night thieves steal the coat right off his back. Using his ingenuity, Gogol is able to track down the thief and recover what is rightfully his. Beautifully-illustrated in rich oils, this book is a delightful new take on Nikolai Gogol’s classic tale.

It's been a freezing winter, the kind that makes your ears go numb, your fingers go icy and your toes freeze even when they're covered by thick socks and boots. But no one knows just how cold it is better than Gogol, a talented scrivener who has somehow made it through the season with just an old patched coat. He's been saving for a new coat and finally buys a beautiful new winter coat. Everybody admires it, but just when he's finally able to warm up, thieves steal the coat off his back. Children will love this twist on Nikolai Gogol's classic tale in Gogol's Coat.
