The Long Red Scarf
by Nette Hilton
illustrated by Margaret Power

Grandpa likes fishing. He also likes his friend Jake's big, long, woolly bright blue scarf. He wants one that is even longer & the reddest red in the whole wide world. The trouble is that he can't find anyone who will knit him one

So Grandpa has to come up with this own solution - he learns to knit himself!


A fresh story that vibrates with positive energy & has a sweet, satisfying resolution

In return for a dish of his homemade cookies, Izzy provides him with needles & yarn, & he knits the scarf himself. Now he & Jake can be found knitting an outfit for the new baby to wear when she'll come fishing with them

The story is quietly told with a rhythm that's calm. It's great that all of the characters are active, capable & beyond limitations traditionally accorded to gender & age

Using a whole rainbow of colours, each page is filled with lively detail. Unusually good-humoured & appealing.

Nice story. I liked that traditional gender roles were reversed in this book
