From bestselling and award-winning writer Mac Barnett and illustrator Jon Klassen comes Extra Yarn, a Caldecott Honor Book, Boston Globe-Horn Book Award winner, and a New York Times bestseller.A young girl and her box of magical yarn turn out to be a community on this stunning picture book. With spare, gently humorous illustrations and a palette that moves from black-and-white to a range of color, this brand new fairy tale has the feel of a new classic. Amazon Highest Books of the Month for Kids, January 2012: A monochrome town gets a change of color and attitude with the assistance of a box of yarn and a girl named Annabelle. From the seemingly endless box of Extra Yarn Annabelle knits clothing for everyone around her, tempering the unwell-tempered, and creating beautifully patterned warmth for people, animals, and objects, alike. When a greedy clothes-loving archduke tries to shop for–then steal–the box for himself, he discovers that unwell-gotten gains bear no fruit–or on this case, yarn. Mac Barnett’s elegant and clever story is complemented by Jon Klassen’s illustrations, and fans of I Want My Hat Back will benefit from the familiar faces that show up on this picture book in regards to the magical properties of kindness and generosity.–Seira Wilson
