Extra Yarn by Mac Barnett is a thoughtful picture book, that promotes determination, integrity, perseverance, respect and being a risk-taker.
In a drab world, Annabelle finds a box containing yarn of every colour. She knits sweaters for her dog, classmates, bears, rabbits and cats. “People thought, soon Annabelle will run out of yarn. But it turned out she didn’t. So, Annabelle made sweaters for things that didn’t even need sweaters.”
An evil archduke steals the box but the magic of the yarn no longer works. The box finds its way back to Annabelle, and the magic continues.
