Greta the goat is a wonderfully accomplished knitter. She can even knit little goats and turn them loose to play around her feet. But when she gets distracted from her knitting, threatening creatures spring from her needles, each more menacing than the last. It takes quick thinking, courage, and brilliant knitting for Greta to find her way out of a perilous situation.

In this whimsical story, creativity and craft empower our heroine to restore her safety . . . as long as she pays attention to what is growing on her knitting needles!

Review quote

"Two popular picture-book subjects, knitting and monsters, get an unlikely, whimsical mashup in this delectable Dutch import."--Horn Book Magazine "The story, told in the present tense, is well-paced and laced with onomatopoeia, and van Haeringen's India ink, watercolor, and colored pencil illustrations are lively and amusing."--Kirkus
