Summary
  • Grandmother wants so badly to be left alone to finish the knitting for her grandchildren that she leaves her tiny home and her big family to journey to the moon and beyond to find peace and quiet to finish her knitting
  • A 2017 Caldecott Honor Book that The New York Times calls "both classic and ultracontemporary," Leave Me Alone! is an epic tale about one grandmother, a giant sack of yarn, and her ultimate quest to finish her knitting. One day, a grandmother shoults, "LEAVE ME ALONE!" and leaves her tiny home and her very big family to journey to the moon andbeyond to find peace and quiet to finish her knitting. Along the way, she encounters ravenous bears, obnovious goats, and even hordes of aliens! But nothing stop s grandma from accomplishing her goal—knitting sweaters for her many grandchildren to keep them warm and toasty for the coming winter. Vera Brosgol's slyly clever and unexpectedly funny modern folktale is certain to warm even the coldest of hearts. --
