What happens to Grandma's house when she doesn't tidy up? Well, you're about to find out. And it's . . . rather dangerous! Thank goodness Owen and Bandit are there. They have ultra-special skills, but they will have to be extra brave to save the day, and Grandma! Will they win the epic battle?


 “Owe...nnnn! Watch out forrrrrrrrrrrrrr..." screamed Grandma.


Owen and Bandit turned around slowly, very very slowly, more slowly than even a snail, and saw...


Its eyes, nose and mouth were made of pompoms set deep into the mess of wild angora curls. Its limbs were coils of touch sinewy camelhair, and its fingers were whips of twine.

Owen and the monster's eyes met. They studied each other up and down. They moved, circling like two wild animals about to fight.

"Get out of here," Owen yelled at Yarni.

"MEOWOUT!" Bandit yelled at Yarni.

But Yarni didn't move.

My Review:

What a cute and well illustrated book for kids. It contains a good lesson about picking up after yourself or your stuff will get out of control.  

I loved that Owen could go to Grandma's house after school and he felt loved and well cared for.  He also had this inner strength to combat The Great, Messy, Multicolored, Monstrous, Yarn Monster!   Owen also knew how to knit.  

A great story that kids will love to read and imagine in their minds the big Yarn Monster.

This book was given to me by the author.  This is my honest opinion.
