Publisher's Summary

Elizabeth Lenhard makes knitting cool for teens in It's a Purl Thing, the first book in the Chicks with Sticks series.

The knitting bug has spread from Scottie Shearer to popular Amanda, free-sprited Bella, and Tay, the anti-girl. The four become an unlikely group of friends with an even more unlikely hobby. But will the pressures of conformity at Stark High keep them from remaining pals?

Young listeners will want to take up their own sticks as they listen along to the lively narration of Liz Morton.
