The Unforgotten Coat by Frank Cottrell Boyce

'It is a warming and sweet read to brighten your day'

This book is a miraculous tale of friendship and fear.

It tells the story of Julie, who upon meeting Chingis and his younger brother, is thrown into an adventure with a demon who has the power to make things vanish. The two boys are in need of help in their new school, because they want to fit in to hide from the demon. Can Julie keep them safe while maintaining her title as their "Good Guide"?

This short yet original book is a hilarious read. Cottrell Boyce cleverly uses the inquisitive nature of children to make this fantasy grow in your mind. Overall it is a warming and sweet read to brighten your day.
