Granny McFlitter never stops knitting. One day there is an oil spill and all the penguins are covered in oil. To help the penguins, this knitting granny knits them jumpers is all shapes, sizes, colors, and patterns. Although this is a picture book, I really enjoyed this story as it was fun, practical, and well written.

I really enjoyed the book, and the quirky, interesting language the writer uses. It was a ludicrous story at the start and my little brothers laughed when I read it to them.
I wonder how you would watch a knitted tv?
Granny used her Knitting to help the penguins who had been affected by an awful oil spill which was so sweet. And then ended up helping the zoo with her amaizng knitting skills.

Poor little penguins 🐧 what will you do covered in oil ,but on the roll is granny 😃 yay. This is a a great rhyming story that is based on a true event that happened in the ocean a few years ago. I admired Granny’s energy and enthusiasm for knitting and wildlife.

Granny McFlitter the champion Knitter is an awesome book. She knits for her family but they don’t appreciate it because she knits woollen undies and scratchy jumpers. When a disaster happens to the penguins in the ocean have been affected by oil and then Granny McFlitter helps. I think Granny McFlitter the champion knitter is a book suitable for people 5 years old and over.
