Extra Yarn

Amazon.com Rating:

A monochrome town gets a change of color and attitude with the help of a box of yarn and a girl named Annabelle. From the seemingly endless box of Extra Yarn Annabelle knits clothing for everyone around her, tempering the ill-tempered, and creating beautifully patterned warmth for people, animals, and objects, alike. When a greedy clothes-loving archduke tries to buy -- then steal -- the box for himself, he discovers that ill-gotten gains bear no fruit -- or in this case, yarn.

Mac Barnett's elegant and clever story is complemented by Jon Klassen's illustrations, and fans of I Want My Hat Back will enjoy the familiar faces that show up in this picture book about the magical properties of kindness and generosity.
