Extra Yarn

Extra Yarn

Written by Mac Barnett, illustrated by Jon Klassen

This looks like an ordinary box full of ordinary yarn.

But it turns out it isn’t.

A monochrome town gets a change of color and attitude with the help of a box of yarn and a girl named Annabelle. From the seemingly endless box of Extra Yarn Annabelle knits clothing for everyone around her, tempering the ill-tempered, and creating beautifully patterned warmth for people, animals, and objects, alike. When a greedy clothes-loving archduke tries to buy–then steal–the box for himself, he discovers that ill-gotten gains bear no fruit–or in this case, yarn.
