Annie Hoot and the Knitting Extravaganza by Holly Clifton-Brown

The Lovereading4Kids comment

Annie Hoot was a kind but scatty little owl. She lived in a tree house deep in the woods. She was always coming up with new ideas for things to do and her latest craze was 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.

Annie is a lovely character. Many of our testers identified with her friends! Red House Children's Book Award, Top 10 A wonderfully entertaining story about trying something new, and daring to be different. -- Julia Eccleshare Lovereading4kids 'It's wonderful to see traditional crafts being portrayed in a modern story for children. Hugely enjoyable.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.
