Overview


To Emily's surprise, the orange raincoat that her mother bought her is even better than the yellow one Emily wanted—this raincoat is magical! "I wish you were a dog," Emily said to her brother, and, just then, he turns into a dog. "I wish I had a million dollars," Emily says, and, just then, two men show up at her door with a bulging briefcase.  After Emily learns that she should use her new raincoat only for good causes, the raincoat disappears. "You wanted a yellow one and our neighbors' girl, Mei, wanted an orange one, so I traded with Mei's mother last night," Emily's mother explains. Through spirited prose and detailed ink-and-collage illustrations, readers will enjoy following Emily as she gains, loses, and tries to recover her raincoat.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Hynes-Berry
Emily is not too pleased to find that her new raincoat not only is too big, it is the wrong color; she wanted orange but got yellow. But when it turns out that whatever she wishes happens, as long as she is wearing the raincoat, she changes her mind. She turns her brother into a dog and demands one million dollars and a purple gorilla. Of course not all her wishes turn out the way she wants, as she discovers when her wish that her father would stay home all the time comes true because her father is fired. By nighttime, Emily decides to reverse her ill advised wishes. Instead of stopping with the lesson well established, David provides a confusing and awkward resolution. Benatova's collage and drawing illustrations are whimsical but very busy. It does not help that the font size changes to highlight one or two words per sentence. While it has some appeal, The Magic Raincoat seems a little overdone.
