On a cold, dark day in a dull, grey town, Annabelle discovers a box of brightly coloured yarn. She knits a cosy jumper to keep herself warm and finds, to her surprise, that she still has extra yarn. So she decides to knit her dog Mars a jumper too but she still has extra yarn!

Annabelle knits and knits and, soon, she's blanketed the entire town in a rainbow of colour. Her fame spreads far and wide. it doesn't take long for the evil Archduke to set his beady eyes upon Annabelle's magical box yarn but, little does he know, you have to have a bit of magic inside your heart for it to work...
