Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

There’s probably not a knitter alive who hasn’t presented a handmade gift and wondered whether the recipient would use it or throw it in the closet. Cameron’s sweater from Grandma Susan gets the closet treatment—and worse. Although he loves his grandmother, her birthday present, a handmade striped sweater, is a huge disappointment. His goal is to get the sweater out of his life via the dog, a rummage sale, and smears of ketchup and mustard. His plans fail though, and he finds himself wearing the sweater when Grandma arrives for a visit. After she tells Cameron why she chose each special color, he begins to understand how much it means to both of them. While, it’s pretty to think so; in real life the sweater would probably go back in the closet. This does, however, make a strong case for “it’s the thought that counts.” Nguyen’s sturdy artwork has some very nice scenes; he cleverly makes the sweater attractive albeit perfectly unacceptable. For those who want to knit the horrible sweater, a pattern is included. Preschool-Grade 1. --Ilene Cooper --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

About the Author

Debbie Macomber has more than 100 million copies of her books in print, and her stories about home and family have a worldwide audience and have been translated into twenty-three languages. In addition to being a #1 New York Times bestseller in fiction many times over, she also has an enormous following among knitters as the author of dozens of pattern and craft books. In 2008, she launched a branded line of knitting products through Leisure Arts, the company that publishes her knitting guides. Debbie and her husband, Wayne, have four children and nine grandchildren, and split their time between Washington State and Florida. This is Debbie’s second picture book co-authored with Mary Lou Carney; their first, The Truly Terribly Horrible Sweaer . . . That Grandma Knit, was published in 2009.



Mary Lou Carney is the editor of two magazines for young people—Guideposts for Teens and Guideposts for Kids. She is the author of several picture books for the Christian and educational markets, including Bubble Gum & Chalk Dust: Prayers and Poems for Teachers, and Absolutely Angels: Poems for Children and Other Believers (Boyds Mills Press). This is Mary Lou’s second picture book coauthored with Debbie; their first, The Truly Terribly Horrible Sweaer . . . That Grandma Knit, was published in 2009.



Vincent Nguyen is not a knitter, but he is a painter, an illustrator, and an artist for feature films large and small. Originally from Houston, Texas, he moved to New York to attend the School of Visual Arts. He currently lives in New York City, where he works as a concept artist for Blue Sky Studios. He has illustrated several books, but this is his first for HarperCollins.
