Lester’s Dreadful Sweaters by K.G. Campbell - ESSENTIAL

Campbell, K.G.  Lester’s Dreadful Sweaters.  Kids Can Press, 2012.  $17.  PICTURE BOOK.  Content: G.  

Poor Lester.  His Cousin Clara insists on knitting him dreadfully frightful sweaters that his parents insist he wear to school.  And even when he manages to wreck one, Clara is ready overnight with a new strange creation.  When Lester comes up with a creative use for all of his sweaters, his problems may be solved.  

Just the illustrations of Lester in those dreadful sweaters is enough to make any child giggle.  And I can think of a dozen knitters that I want to gift this to.
