This cute story is about Annie Hoot, an owl who loves to knit and make things for others. She tries to make outfits for her friends at home, but her friends decline the clothes because they don't want to be different from one another. Annie stops insisting and goes on to help other animals around the world, like in Africa and Antarctica. The book uses lots of interesting language that focuses on specific letter sounds. For example, "Annie makes polka-dot pullovers for penguins." This book would ...more

It's a super story, with lovely illustrations, and it combines two things that I love - owls AND knitting.

That being said, I have to mention that this book perpetuates the great North Pole animals myth.

PENGUINS AND POLAR BEARS DO NOT LIVE IN THE SAME HABITAT!
I realize it's a story and not a science book, but misinformation drives me batty, particularly in books for children.

I loved the concept and wanted to love the book, but ended up liking it a lot instead. Ahem.

As an owl-loving knitter, I did want to love this unfortunately underwhelming book.

An story in which an owl knits. Nothing groundbreaking, but this should have mass appeal to 30 something hipster gals with an owl + knitting fetish. I did enjoy seeing the animals dressed in their handmades.

Only complaint: penguins do not live in the Artic. That would be the Antartic.

But other than that, LOVE! KNITTING! OWLS! KNITTING OWLS! So adorable. I wish it came with the patterns.

Cute story, great knitting tie-in, colorful pictures. This had the potential to be roll-your-eyes cutesy but it isn't, which is good. I would read this aloud to kids.

So fun and wonderful, until I saw the penguins with the polar bears. Not okay! Polar Bears are at the North Pole and Penguins live at the South Pole!
Charlotte
Automatic one-star deduction for having both polar bears AND penguins at the North Pole. Charlotte doesn't care, but I do.

I mostly like this book. But I don't like how polar bears and penguins live together. That is silly.
