This is a heartfelt book about the happiness a little girl can bring to a dark world. Annabelle finds a box of yarn that seems to be never-ending. She uses the box of yarn to knit sweaters for everyone and everything in her dreary town. This magical box of yarn brings light to this little girl, her dog, and the world around her. She is not even phased when a rich Archduke comes to offer her millions of dollars for her box of yarn. It will only work for her as she does the job of lifting this town up with a little bit of extra yarn. With beautiful illustrations, this book is perfect for a dreary winter day!
