Read full description of the books Fenwick's Suit:
The woebegone protagonist, characterized by an unflattering haircut, drab clothes, unprepossessing face and lackluster posture, decides to get a makeover by donning a loud, yellow-and-red check suit. Events rapidly spiral out of control as the suit takes on a life of its own, forcing Fenwick to give chase. The story then accelerates with the rapidity of a runaway freight train, lending crazy, surreal action to a simple tale of a man foiled by his own attempts at self improvement.
I quite liked the amusing notion played out within this book. The endsheets are the same brilliant yellow and red design as Fenwick’s suit, drawing the reader at once into the storyline. Both the words and the illustrations blend into the storyline as poor Fenwick tries to get hold of his runaway suit. Near the end, wordplay lends an insouciant fillip to the illustrations as the author/illustrator uses such words as “threaded”, “collared”, “hemmed” and “buttoned” to describe Fenwick’s faceoff with his fleeing foe.
The ending felt a tad too abrupt and the foolish Fenwick didn’t seem to have learned his lesson at all as he found himself once more wondering what would bring him the popularity he so sought. But it did bring matters full circle as was perhaps the author’s intention.
