How to Knit a Monster

(2) K-3 Greta the goat thinks herself a masterful knitter. When Greta accidentally knits a hungry wolf who swallows Mrs. Sheep whole, Greta knits a tiger to take care of the wolf; when the tiger threatens Greta, she knits an enormous monster... Spare, gestured line drawings depict the cloven-hoofed characters and richly textured painting shows the needlework in this ebullient Dutch import, a winning take on the traditional cumulative story.
