Description
(A 2013 Caldecott Honor Book and the Winner of the 2012 Boston Globe–Horn Book Award for Excellence in Picture Books) Adding to a list of accolades that includes a Caldecott Medal, a Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor, and multiple New York Times Best Illustrated Children's Book of the Year honors (for such books as I Want My Hat Back, House Held Up by Trees, and This Is Not My Hat), Jon Klassen again provides award-winning cartoon illustrations in this delightful yarn from Mac Barnett, for readers 4 to 8. Sharp-eyed youngsters may spot a few familiar faces among Klassen's bemused animals.

"Klassen's deadpan, stylized illustrations impeccably complement Barnett's quirky droll writing."—Library Journal (starred review)

"Understated illustrations and prose seamlessly construct an enchanting and mysterious tale."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Klassen's pacing ... is impeccable. The final spread, all light and yarn-covered tree limbs, brings Barnett's clever, quiet yarn full circle, to a little girl and a town, now colorful and happy."—Horn Book Magazine (starred review)

"This understated picture book is certain to spark the imagination of every child who comes upon it, and what could be better than that? Annabelle lives in a black and white world, where everything is drab, drab, drab. So imagine her surprise when she finds a box filled with yarn of every color. Armed with the yarn and knitting needles, she makes herself a sweater, but after she finishes, she finds that she has extra yarn left over. After knitting a sweater for her dog, her classmates, and various (hilariously unsurprised) bunnies and bears, she still has extra yarn. So, Annabelle turns her attention to things that don't usually wear wool cozies: houses and cars and mailboxes. Soon an evil archduke with a sinister mustache 'who was very fond of clothes' hears about the magic box of never-ending yarn, and he wants it for his own. Reading like a droll fairy tale, this Barnett-Klassen collaboration is both seamless and magical. The spare, elegant text and art are also infused with plenty of deadpan humor. Klassen uses ink, gouache, and digital illustration to fashion Annabelle's world.... Quirky and wonderful, this story quietly celebrates a child's ingenuity and her ability to change the world around her."—Booklist (starred review)
