"This looks like an ordinary box full of ordinary yarn.
But it turns out it isn't.
Mac Barnett, Extra Yarn

Extra Yarn is a timeless fairytale. It tells the story of sweet Annabelle who lives in a cold and dreary town with her little dog called Mars. Everything around her that isn't covered in snow seems to be a shade of black or grey - the trees, the buildings, the clothes...However, one day she finds a magic box of endless yarn and never runs out, so she makes herself and everyone around her clothes from the yarn. She's generous and friendly. She stands by what she's doing. When the evil archduke urges her to sell her box, does she bend to the pressure?

This book is filled with Klassen's beautiful illustrations, revealing just enough detail to enhance the emotions laid out by Barnett's flawlessly simple words. It is a gem to be enjoyed for years as the meaning gradually reveals itself to you as you grow in age and life experience.
