An epic tale about one grandmother, a giant sack of yarn, and her ultimate quest to finish her knitting. One day, a grandmother shouts, "LEAVE ME ALONE!" and leaves her tiny home and her very big family to journey to the moon and beyond to find peace and quiet to finish her knitting. Along the way, she encounters ravenous bears, obnoxious goats, and even hordes of aliens! But nothing stops grandma from accomplishing her goal?knitting sweaters for her many grandchildren to keep them warm and toasty for the coming winter. This slyly clever and unexpectedly funny modern folktale by Vera Brosgol is certain to warm even the coldest of hearts.

This book is a riot! My boys, including my 7th grader, find it hilarious! ***Spoiler Alert*** when my kids are really getting under my skin, I now ask them if I need to go into a worm hole, which makes them laugh but also gets them to :D

Every knitter who's ever been interrupted will be able to relate to this warm tale! What a delightful book! After hearing the author on the KnitPicks podcast, I had to stop right away and order a copy for my daughter's birthday the next day...and then another copy, which my little guy insists on reading with me every day before his nap. THANK YOU for the laughs, the frustration, and the warmth!
