The Lovereading4Kids comment

Brightly coloured knitting streams from the clicking-clacking needles of Annie Hoot, an Owl with a very unusual habit! The other owls reject Annie Hoot’s multi-coloured offerings but she cleverly takes her talent elsewhere and finds parrots in the rainforest and animals in the Arctic eager to try her woolly wear. An wonderfully entertaining story about trying something new, and daring to be different.


Annie Hoot and the Knitting Extravaganza by Holly Clifton-Brown

Annie Hoot is a kind but scatty little owl. She lives in a tree house deep in the woods. She is always coming up with new ideas for things to do, and her latest craze is knitting. But unfortunately, the other owls don't appreciate her wonderful knitted clothes, so she sets off round the world to find other animals who will.


A wonderfully entertaining story about trying something new, and daring to be different. -- Julia Eccleshare
