Personal Response and Rating: 5/5. This was a cute book, and it was funny to everything that the girl made sweaters for, I think that it would get kid’s imaginations running wild. It’s also super cool, because I got to hear the author read this book aloud!

Text Dependent Question: Why was there no string in the box when the pirate got it? Does it take the girl a long time to knit these sweaters?
