Title: Leave Me Alone
Author/Illustrator: Vera Brosgol
Publisher: Roaring Brook Press
Ages: 4-8


There was once an old lady who lived in a small house with a very, very big family. One day, she shouted, LEAVE ME ALONE, and left her village.

But don't worry, she'll be back...maybe...

Why you should read it:

Most parents (and some grandparents) can relate when all they want is one moment of peace and quiet. A place to call their own where the only sound is silence and no one to referee.

In this story of one grandmother's wish to be able to knit a sweater without the interference of little hands or feet, LEAVE ME ALONE is an epic tale of one person's quest to finish her knitting. 

From deep within the forest to the far side of the moon, this grandmother is running out of places to hide until she discovers a wormhole in outer space. 

Finally, she has the complete silence she is looking for. But is it really what she wants?

Ms. Brosgol artfully blends an engaging story with old style illustrations to create a picture book that would be a great addition to any home library!
