Annabelle fills her black & white town with color and good will from her neverending box of yarn - until a greedy archduke tries to steal it and put a curse on her. "It turns out" Barnett & Klassen have created a delightful new fairy tale about the power and magic of sharing one's gifts.— From Melissa's Picks
“The town where Annabelle lives is a very boring place; a dull grey city where nobody wears anything colorful at all. One day Annabelle finds a box full of yarn, so she knits herself a sweater. But she finds that she has extra yarn left over. Soon, she is knitting sweaters for everyone and everything (even a pickup truck!) and her town is becoming brighter by the stitch. Somehow, she always has extra yarn!”
