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...

MEDIA REVIEWS
'A perfect feel good picture book' and 'a unique picture book and a terrific read' * The Bookseller *
charming ... ideal for three and a half years upwards and its soothing narrative is good for bedtime. Likely to become a classroom favourite too. * We Love This Book *
extraordinary ... the perfect marriage of a beautiful, timeless story and stunning illustrations -- Julia Eccleshare * Lovereading4kids.co.uk *
Jon Klassen's illustrations carry the joke of this affirming fantasy effortlessly. -- Julia Eccleshare/Michelle Pauli * The Guardian *
Jon Klassen's illustrations add greatly to this story. His colourful knitting pattern pulls the story together as it features not only on clothes, but on buildings, cars and animals. He portrays Annabelle with the most wonderful expressions which reflect her strength of character. This delightful story will read aloud very well in class and be ideal for role play activities * Reading Zone *
I adored this book so much I read it twice from cover to cover without stopping. It's a sweet story but funny too, and I love the style of the writing and the ending * The Book Bag *
