Extra Yarn By: Mac Barnett


When Annabelle discovers a box containing a never-ending supply of wool, she knits sweaters for everyone and everything in town, enveloping her bleak surroundings in cozy colors, until an evil archduke threatens to unravel her efforts. Featuring a serenely imperturbable heroine, this perfectly crafted yarn is expertly embellished with homespun whimsy. (School Library Journal)
