Joseph, the tailor, is very resourceful. When his overcoat becomes old and worn, he makes it into a jacket, then his jacket into a vest. And so on until he has nothing left - then he even makes something out of that!

Reviews:
"The superbly crafted animation enhances the book's mixed-media and collage illustrations." - Starred Review, Booklist
"Rob Reiner's narration reflects Joseph's wisdom and humor, and the infectious Klezmer music will have viewers swaying and singing along. Teachers can use Joseph to introduce lessons on recycling or sequencing (or) just for fun." - School Library Journal
