Summary: (from the publisher) An epic tale about one grandmother, a giant sack of yarn, and her ultimate quest to finish her knitting.
Why I like this book: An editor at Roaring Brook showed me this one back in February, and I have been sooo good at waiting sooo long to share it with you! I love finding picture books with an adult as the main protagonist, and I have totally fallen for this snarky Grandmother! Actually, I fell for the cover straight away! AND it’s a great read-aloud! The superb color palette and beautifully rendered compositions are icing on the cake!
