From the Pocket of an Overcoat

                                                       R. Vincent 

“From the Pocket of an Overcoat,” tells the endearing story of Max, the most sweet and lovable black cat.

 You never know what or who you will meet on the street, and what you will learn on a chance meeting.  R. Vincent has written and illustrated a children’s picture book entitled ‘From the Pocket of an Overcoat’.  This is the story of a man named Farmer Buckles and Max, a cat, and how they met and now live.  Sally was a poor woman who gave Max to Farmer Buckles and he gave her some kind of payment for Max.  Farmer Buckles and Max head for home and Max meets his new family and friends and has quite the time getting to know each other.  R. Vincent told and showed a story of kindness and the charming illustrations visually tell the story in a fun way.  He cutely drew the animals using primary colors and still made them realistic to a point.  Teachers can teach what animals live on a farm and even name objects that they see through the story when the teacher asks questions like this:  What is this?  Who is this?  The teacher could even start discussions on ‘Was it safe for Farmer Buckles to drive his car? What do you think?  Farmer Buckles and Sally were strangers was it a good idea to make this trade if it happen today?  The last page said ‘Stay tuned’ is there more Max stories to come?
