The best Books The Unforgotten Coat the best work My brother believes he is being chased by a demon a demon that makes things vanish Carnegie Medallist Frank Cottrell Boyce transports readers from the steppe of Mongolia to the streets of Liverpool in a story that is compelling, miraculous and laugh out loud funny.. Good Books The Unforgotten Coat I really liked the format of this book: how it was printed on "notebook paper" and included the different Polaroid pictures that Chingis took in his many different journeys. It had a nice sense of mysteriousness about it as the author fumbles her way through learning about Chingis and Yergui and tries to be a "Good Guide" for them as they try to get adjusted to school life after coming from Mongolia. Her assumptions about them--that their big fur coats are Mongolian, that they know a lot about how to survive in the wild--are ones that I as a reader willingly went along with, and so it was really intriguing in the end when so many of those are undone, and Chingis' exotic Polaroids are revealed to be simply pictures of the local landscape through his own unique perspective that "Mongolianizes" them. Discovering that the demon after Yergui is actually the British immigration system, and learning that they suddenly get deported back to where their lives are in danger, was also a sudden and somewhat shocking turn of events. Boyce does a really admirable job of painting their situation through Julie's eyes to make the book have a childish, naive air of excitement, imagination, and misunderstanding, and feel as unexpected as it did. It's especially interesting that the idea for the book was based on a real Mongolian girl in Britain who won the hearts of her class and then was suddenly deported with her family.I like how this book assumes that much of what Chingis and Yergui do is tradition (especially Julie's obsession with getting invited into what she assumes with be their plush and lavish house with samovars), but shows that they are really in a state of flux: learning English and gaining Liverpool accents, using the Polaroid camera, learning football, and trying to learn how to fit in and be like the other boys. Julie is much more interested with learning about and presenting their culture to the class than Chingis and Yergui are, perhaps because of their immigration situation, or perhaps because they want to become more acculturated.
