Debbie Macomber is one of my favorite authors and I was pleased to see her write a children's book with Ms. Carney. The story is really funny and sets off with Cameron trying to get rid of the sweater that his grandmother had knit him for his birthday. His disappointment in the sweater and the lengths that he goes through to try and hide this "awful" present are hilarious.
I just loved the illustrations and the facial expressions just make you want to laugh out loud! A joyful book for any knitter to share with their grandchildren!
This story will bring a smile to your face and I very much enjoyed it, but I also liked that the actual sweater pattern, and directions of how to knit the sweater, were included in this book, which made it the perfect prize for my party.
It's a story that can be enjoyed by all whether you're a reader or a knitter looking for a chuckle. I am looking forward to more books like this by Debbie Macomber!
