Extra Yarn

Extra Yarn

Annabelle finds a box of yarn that looks like your average, ordinary box of yarn, but this one has something special about it. She knits, and knits, and knits, as any good knitter would do having found a box of yarn, and it seems like she’ll never get to the end of the string of yarn! This magical box that continues to spit out sweater after sweater’s worth of yarn in a beautiful multicolor ends up on her friends, family, dogs, and even a great many things that don’t wear sweaters – like a mailbox, for instance. Even the characters from Jon Klassen’s I Want My Hat Back get sweaters in this book – as they should, since this book is illustrated by the same man. This book  is fantastically fun and really beautifully put together. One of my favorite picture books of the year!
