It looks like an ordinary box full of ordinary yarn, but it turns out it isn’t. With a supply of yarn that never runs out, Annabelle knits for everyone and everything in town until an evil archduke decides he wants the yarn for himself...

Why we love it... With its matter-of-fact text and subtle illustrations, Extra Yarn is new story with a classic feel that packs a joyous punch.
