Red Jacket

Bob the Seagull is a loner. A drifter. An isolationist of sorts. But all that changes when he’s gifted a red jacket!

*A Junior Library Guild Gold Standard Selection!

Perfect for fans of Christopher Denise's Knight Owl, Jory John and Pete Oswald's The Bad Seed and Jon Klassen's I Want My Hat Back!

Bob loves his red jacket.

The red jacket makes him feel swanky cool.

The red jacket makes other seagulls notice him and even speak to him.

But when a wave washes it away, will Bob lose his cool and his newfound friends, too? 

Bob Holt’s spare text and humorous artwork come together perfectly in this charmingly humorous tale about a seagull who learns a lesson or two about style and confidence.
