Extra Yarn - Author Mac Barnett and Illustrator Jon Klassen

The New York Times bestselling duo and extreme favorites of Hicklebee's, Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen, are coming to town! Together they have created a modern day classic, Extra Yarn. It looks like an ordinary box full of ordinary yarn, but it turns out it isn’t. With a supply of yarn that never runs out, Annabelle knits for everyone and everything in town until an evil archduke decides he wants the yarn for himself. Come meet these remarkable storytellers.

Mac Barnett is the author of several picture books, including Billy Twitters and His Blue Whale Problem and Guess Again! He also writes the Edgar-nominated series of Brixton Brothers mysteries. He lives in Oakland.

Jon Klassen is the author and illustrator of I Want My Hat Back and has illustrated picture books and novels and served as an illustrator on the animated feature film Coraline. He grew up in Niagra Falls, Canada, and now lives in Los Angeles.
