Two popular picture-book subjects, knitting and monsters, get an unlikely, whimsical mashup in this delectable Dutch import. Greta the goat thinks herself a masterful knitter and has knitted up a crew of little goats to keep her company. Mean Mrs. Sheep objects, and when a distracted Greta accidentally knits a hungry wolf who swallows Mrs. Sheep wh Two popular picture-book subjects, knitting and monsters, get an unlikely, whimsical mashup in this delectable Dutch import. Greta the goat thinks herself a masterful knitter and has knitted up a crew of little goats to keep her company. Mean Mrs. Sheep objects, and when a distracted Greta accidentally knits a hungry wolf who swallows Mrs. Sheep whole, it seems she may have had a point. Greta knits a tiger to take care of the wolf, and when the tiger threatens Greta, she knits an enormous monster to take care of the tiger. Having learned her lesson, Greta hangs onto the monster’s tail and unravels the whole mess, revealing Mrs. Sheep, now full of praise. A final spread suggests that the grass Greta is knitting for her baby goats may come back to bite her. The ebullient story is enhanced by illustrations made of spare, gestured line drawings to depict the cloven-hoofed main characters and richly textured, saturated painting to show the needlework. A new and winning take on the traditional cumulative story.- Thom Barthelmess, Horn Book
