‘Along Came Coco,’ by Eva Byrne.

Coco Chanel is a name synonymous with style and luxury, but did you know that she grew up an orphan in a convent?

In this fabulous picture book biography, readers will learn how Coco developed her sewing skills whilst being brought up in a convent and where her love of beautiful AND practical clothing for women came from. You’ll also find out the surprising reason for Coco’s classic bob!


It was fascinating to see how she came from such humble beginnings and grew up to become one of fashion’s most legendary figures. A really interesting and insightful for read which would be enjoyed by readers aged 7+
