Review by Booklist Reviews

Granny Fuzz tells the best stories; all the young creatures in their forest community come to her cozy, yarn-bombed burrow to hear tales of Iron Purl, a kind superhero who uses her fast knitting skills to save the day. Bats stealing all the fruit? Iron Purl knits some supersoft and comfy pouches around the bats, who fall asleep. A tree housing a fair caught fire? Iron Purl knits a net to catch creatures as they leap from the branches. Nyeu's lively, botanical folk-art style in bright but muted colors sets the perfect tone for the gentle capers, and a wealth of attention-grabbing details in the background hint at the secret identities of Iron Purl and her nemesis, Bandit Bob. The last of Granny Fuzz's stories recounts their rivalry and its sweet resolution. Yarn and knitting naturally figure prominently in the artwork—needle nitpickers will be pleased to know that Iron Purl and Bandit Bob hold them the right way. With artwork to pore over and a quiet adventure, this will be a snuggly pick for bedtime. Preschool-Grade 1. Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.
