Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Winter 2012 Kids' Next List
“The town where Annabelle lives is a very boring place; a dull grey city where nobody wears anything colorful at all. One day Annabelle finds a box full of yarn, so she knits herself a sweater. But she finds that she has extra yarn left over. Soon, she is knitting sweaters for everyone and everything (even a pickup truck!) and her town is becoming brighter by the stitch. Somehow, she always has extra yarn!”
-- Maryam Yachnes, Hooray for Books!, Alexandria, VA


Description

This looks like an ordinary box full of ordinary yarn.

But it turns out it isn’t.
