Description - Extra Yarn by Mac Barnett

The multiple award-winning, bestselling team of Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen tell an extraordinary tale about a little girl who cocoons her cold, grey town in joy and warmth ... and brightly coloured yarn!

From the award-winning team behind Sam and Dave Dig a Hole, and illustrated by Jon Klassen, the Kate Greenaway-winning creator of This Is Not My Hat and I Want My Hat Back, this is the story of little Annabelle, who discovers a box of brightly coloured yarn on a cold, dark day in a dull, grey town. So 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...
