Extra Yarn

Discoveries that can change your life are all around you and in the most unlikely places,  but beware of coveting someone else’s.  Mac Barnett  and Jon Klassen tell a simple tale with many lessons in their picture book – Extra Yarn.

Resisting ridicule and bribes, Annabelle creatively uses a box that never runs out of yarn  to renew herself, her family, friends, and the town.  She understands the value of the box beyond money, and the box stays faithful to its owner.

With the same simple drawings he used to illustrate I Want My Hat Back, Jon Klassen  transforms a dark icy scene into a knitter’s paradise.
