Granny Mutton author Amanda Brandon brought socks, scarves and sheep fun to Rayleigh Library recently.
Children checked in for a morning of story-telling and crafts based on Amandaâ€™s farmyard Granny Mutton Yarn series of picture books, plus a chance to see Grannyâ€™s famous 13ft long knitted scarf!
Amanda whose latest book A Knit and a Knot features Little Lionel on the hunt for Grannyâ€™s missing wool said, â€œIt was great to receive a warm welcome from the townâ€™s children and library staff.”
â€œThe children made some woollen dream catchers and fluffy sheep pictures and then we all enjoyed playing the socks matching game. It was a great to meet so many enthusiastic young readers for the start of World Book Day.â€
