The Magic Jacket is a short story based on a concept developed by Sandra and Charles Hobson. In the story a young mother soothes the discomfort of her son who has had a bad day at school, or rather, a series of bad days at school. She tells him about a little girl who, many years before, was also having a bad time at school. In the tale the little girl learns a vital life lesson about self confidence from her encounter with a magic jacket--a jacket her grandfather got for her when he took her to her first big league baseball game.
A limited edition 4 x 5 inch print of the baseball, entitled Anna's Baseball, is included in a fold in the inside front cover. Limited edition of 60 copies.
