Stanley the Amazing Knitting Cat – Emily MacKenzie


18th June 2016 | by Rachael Rogan

Stanley LOVES to knit. He knocks up pom-poms at breakfast time, whips up bobble hats at bath time. He even knits in his sleep! And what does Stanley do with his wonderful woollies? He gives them to his friends of course – balaclavas for bunnies, neckwarmers for giraffes and much more besides.

But when Stanley gets carried away with his dream of winning the Woolly Wonders Competition, he has to decide what’s more important – his knitting or his friends?

Another fabulously funny story from the creator of Wanted! Ralfy Rabbit, Book Burglar.
Perfect for creative kids everywhere!
