Leave Me Alone! by Vera Bristol - ADVISABLE

Brosgol, Vera Leave Me Alone! PICTURE BOOK. Roaring Brook Press (MacMillan) 2016. $17.99. Content: G.  

When an old grandmother finds it impossible to get her winter knitting done, she goes all the way to the moon and back to get her sweaters finished.  

I’m a knitter and I totally get this book! It’s hard to get something done when the people (and animals) around you don’t understand.  Adorable pictures tell as much of the story as the text does.  Part folk tale, part science fiction, I’ll be reading this over and over to the grandkids and letting them play with some yarn).
