Granny McFlitter: A Country Yarn

Author(s): Heather Haylock

NZ Picture Books

Granny McFlitter, our favourite champion knitter, is back! And this time, it's to save the A&P Show. Can Granny outwit - or should we say outknit - a rampaging bull?


"Ole!" Granny cried, as the cape flapped around.The bull steamed and snorted and pawed at the ground.


Granny McFlitter's knitting needles have been in a blur, whipping up an entry for the local A&P Show's 'Best Vegetable Knitter? competition.


But all of a sudden, the A&P Show turns to chaos when a bull breaks out of his pen. Before you could say "Mighty mad macho moo", he's trampling pavlovas and sponge cakes. Everyone dives for cover - but not Granny McFlitter. She has a plan to capture the bull with - you guessed it - her knitting needles!


A brand new, fabulously funny, rhyming read-aloud story from acclaimed author Heather Haylock and Gavin Bishop Award-winning illustrator Lael Chisholm.

Ruth's Review:


"Ole!" Granny cried, as the cape flapped around.
The bull steamed and snorted and pawed at the ground.


Granny McFlitter’s knitting needles have been in a blur, whipping up an entry for the local A&P Show’s ‘Best Vegetable Knitter’ competition. But suddenly everything turns to chaos when a bull breaks out of his pen and tramples all over the pavlovas and sponge cakes.

Everyone dives for cover, except for Granny McFlitter, who naturally comes up with a seamless plan to save the day.

A Country Yarn continues the hilarious rhyme and zany illustrations that made Granny McFlitter, Champion Knitter a worthy finalist in the NZ Book Awards for Children & Young Adults last year. The character of Granny McFlitter is surely destined to become as popular as Grandma McGarvey.

A terrific read-aloud for ages 3 to 6 years.
