Joseph had a little overcoat, but it was full of holes—just like this book! When Joseph's coat got too old and shabby, he made it into a jacket. But what did he make it into after that? And after that?

As children turn the pages of this book, they can use the die-cut holes to guess what Joseph will be making next from his amazing overcoat, while they laugh at the bold, cheerful artwork and learn that you can always make something, even out of nothing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent read for toddlers and adults alike This simple story with a moral is entertaining and totally caught my toddler's attention. The many detailed illustrations, based largely on the Fiddler on the Roof, are a delight for adults and children alike and make this one book I don't mind reading to my son over and over and over again!
