Granny McFlitter. The Knit before Christmas by Heather Haylock, illus. Lael Chisholm. Imprint Picture Puffin 10 October 2022

Granny McFlitter is a big time knitter “does she stop? no she does not. She keeps on knitting, like it or not”.

Its the night before Christmas and things are hotting up down at the zoo where granny has knitted stockings for all the animals. Expectation is huge until calamity. A Tufted Tweetlebird has dismembered the animals stockings and built herself a nest for her four eggs.

What to do? get granny McFlitter to sort it out. Christmas is threatened. Will she do it? She is the fastest knitter around when all said and done. Check this fabulous picture book out and see what happens.

Heather Haylock’s clever rhyming text is enhanced by Lael Chisholm’s colourful expressive illustrations that feature animals from the zoo, a Tufted Tweetlebird and multiple balls of wool. I loved the knitting needles in granny’s hair bun and the giraffe with a square bend in his neck. Lots to look at.

Great as a Christmas present for pre school and junior readers.
