Description

"Nellie has a lot of trouble keeping her sweater clean, and repeated washings and repeated shrinking keep the story moving. Straightforward language and plot keep the pages turning and make this a readable story for emergent readers and storytime alike. Energetic watercolor illustrations of Nellie's wild red hair and her grandmother's squinting eyes provide humor for this tribute to knitters everywhere."
Kirkus
