A cat and ball of yarn are best of friends, and they have a lot of fun playing together. One day, Girl takes Yarn away, and when he returns, he is no longer his normal bouncy self - he has been completely transformed into a sweater. Cat doesn’t like that Yarn has changed, but soon he warms up, and though Yarn has changed, they will always be friends.
This book is especially recommended for families who own a cat or appreciate the distinct personalities possessed by cats. The illustrations are fun and children will enjoy seeing the ways Cat interacts with Yarn, as well as Cat’s various moods and facial expressions. Parents can use this book to teach their children about the tug-of-war between wanting things to return to the way they were, and finding the new good in those changes. The message of this books is that change needs not end a friendship.
