Review

Annabelle lives in world full of white snow and black soot from chimneys, but one day she finds an ordinary box with yarn of every color. Annabelle knits herself a sweater, but the yarn doesn’t run out! So she knits more sweaters, for people, animals, and things that don’t normally wear sweaters. But one day an evil archduke steals her ordinary box of yarn, yet in the end both he and Annabelle are surprised. This book uses both words and illustrations to tell the story and the style of both words and pictures complement each other well. This would be a good book for children to see the difference that having color in life makes and how doing things for others brings happiness. Highly Recommended.
