I received a copy of this title from PanMacmillan Australia for review.
Ten Second Synopsis:
A cat and ball of yarn are best friends. When Yarn undergoes a big change, Cat doesn't know if the friendship can endure.
It's no secret that we are big fans of yarn and its related fibre-crafted products around the shelf, and when yarn is combined with a cute, grumpy-faced cat that looks a little like one of the cats in the dwelling, you can be sure that we will be big fans of the result.
Cat, unsurprisingly, is friends with Yarn. They play together in all sorts of hilarious ways (read: sledding), they snuggle up together and are generally as happy as a cat and an inanimate object could be. When Girl takes yarn away and returns him completely changed however, Cat isn't in love with the arrangement. What follows is a struggle between wanting things back the way they were and finding good use for yarn's new form and function. But it isn't all bad. After all, where there's one ball of yarn, there might be more!
This book was a lot of fun and the mini-fleshlings particularly enjoyed the various moods of Cat, played out via his facial expressions. I particularly liked the machinations of Girl, which are known in the wider world as "knitting", and was quite comforted by the fact that clearly Mad Martha isn't the only one who pores over yarn catalogues with such undivided attention. The ending is a great laugh, featuring more in the way of catty expressions of displeasure, and a very nifty bobble hat indeed. The overall message of the book is that a change in the personality of one's friend need not mean the end of a friendship, and that such changes can be just what is needed at that point in time.
The edition of the book that we received came with a dust jacket featuring the image above, and as we are incurable dust-jacket removers, we were able to uncover the delightful design on the hardback cover.
I would recommend Cat Knit to anyone who (a) has a cat or (b) is able to laugh at cats, which, let's admit it, is every human alive. Having received the thumbs up of approval from the mini-fleshlings in this dwelling, I can also say that it has passed the giggle road test for reading aloud to little ones

Read information about the authorHello! I’m Jacob Grant and I make picture books. Absurd and heartfelt picture books.
Originally from Ohio, I now live in Chicago with my wife and one very busy child. When not wrangling this little force of nature, I can be found in my home studio drawing, painting and writing until something feels story-ish. With a bit of luck, some of this mess gets made into books!
