Publisher's Summary

Dolly Parton lends the lyrics of her classic song “Coat of Many Colors” to this heartfelt picture book for young readers.

Country music legend Dolly Parton’s rural upbringing in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee provides the backdrop for this special picture book. Using lyrics from her classic song “Coat of Many Colors,” the book tells the story of a young girl in need of a warm winter coat. When her mother sews her a coat made of rags, the girl is mocked by classmates for being poor.

I grew up in Loveland, Colorado where I spent my childhood days drawing cats, mermaids and treehouses. When not drawing I could be found making shoe box dioramas, building snow forts with my brother, or watching the Muppet Show. I've illustrated several books for kids including BABY LOVE by Angela DiTerlizzi, HENRY WANTS MORE! by Linda Ashman, and the CUPCAKE COUSINS series by Kate Hannigan. My first book as author/illustrator, BRAVE MOLLY, will be released by Chronicle in the spring of 2019.
