Extra Yarn

Extra Yarn, a Caldecott Honor Book, Boston Globe-Horn Book Award winner, and a New York Timesbestseller, is the story of how a young girl and her box of magical yarn transform a community.

 

With spare, gently humorous illustrations and a palette that moves from black-and-white to a range of color, this modern fairy tale has the feel of a new classic.

 

Extra Yarn is written by Mac Barnett and illustrated by Jon Klassen, who also won a Caldecott Medal forThis Is Not My Hat.
