Extra Yarn tells the story of Annabelle, who with the help of a little bit of colorful yarn, changes her world. The illustrations are darling and even give readers a quick glance at some of their friend’s from I Want my Hat Back. The story though, of the power of one small person, is an important one for children and their grown ups to hear again and again.

Now I think I will go out and search for my own box of yarn…
