In my experience, it is unusual that, as here, the sun starts the argument. The story's form is the poorer version: Whichever one of us can make this poor traveller take off his coat shall be declared the stronger, suggests the Sun (10). Pastels and black-and-white illustrations alternate. Horder does a good job with both contestants as they do more and more and more. I like particularly the pictures of the man first dragging his coat (26) and then resting (28). Perhaps Horder's signature is what makes this book so expensive.
