But when a ship runs aground, spilling oil into the sea, a call goes out for small jumpers for the shivery rescued penguins. It's the moment Granny has been waiting for! A sparkling environmental story with award-winning illustrations that is sure to warm hearts and feathers.

Author Biography

About the author As a child, Heather Haylock could often be found reading a book while sitting on her horse, or perched way up high in a tree. She lives in Auckland where she has the best task in the world - helping five year olds learn to read books too. (But in a classroom, not on a horse or in a tree.) She loves the challenge of knitting words into stories. Now, thanks to her research for Granny McFlitter and the penguins, Heather is also able to knit yarn into jumpers. If you want to find her, try looking up. She may be reading or writing a book, or knitting a jumper, way up high in a tree. Heather's original manuscript of Granny McFlitter, the Champion Knitter was shortlisted for the Storylines Joy Cowley Award in 2012. About the illustrator Lael Chisholm has loved drawing ever since she was old enough to hold a pencil. After years of scribbling and doodling at school, home and any other place where a pen and paper was handy, she decided to call her scrawls art, and to share them with the world. Nowadays she spends her free time drawing at her home in Feilding. Lael's illustrations for Granny McFlitter, the Champion Knitter by Heather Haylock won the 2017 Storylines Gavin Bishop Award for Illustration.
