Product description

This is an extraordinary new picture book about a little girl who cocoons her cold, grey town in joy and warmth...and brightly coloured yarn! On a cold, dark day in a dull, grey town, little Annabelle discovers a box of brightly coloured yarn. She knits a cosy jumper to keep herself nice and toasty warm and finds, to her surprise, that she still has yarn left over. So she decides to knit her dog a jumper too but - hang on a second - she STILL has extra yarn! Annabelle knits and knits and, soon, she's blanketed the entire town in a rainbow of colour, knitting away the dreary iciness that grips it. Her prodigious status spreads far and wide. It doesn't take long for the evil Archduke to set his beady eyes upon Annabelle's magical box of yarn but, little does he know, you have to have a little bit of magic inside your heart for it to work...This is the perfect marriage of a beautiful, timeless story and stunning illustrations from a dream duo, Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen. Jon Klassen was named a Caldedcott Honor Recipient for his illustrations for this book. Rising star Jon Klassen's debut picture book, I Want My Hat Back, was listed as one of the New York Times' Best Illustrated Books of 2011. You can keep your eyes peeled for a very familiar-looking bear in Extra Yarn!
