K-Gr 3—A small blue ball of yarn seeks a life of adventure. When Edmund was young, his parents would reel him in after his journeys. When he gets bigger, the "tug of discovery" is too much to resist and Edmund travels far afield. If he feels melancholy, Edmund follows the familiar, welcoming pull leading him back home. Kolb's stylized, digitally created cartoons are animated with bright colors and lots of action. The bundle of wool is pictured sailing through the air on the back of a kite, chatting with a pin cushion, and being chased by playful kittens. VERDICT Tightly woven with wordplay, this is a whimsical story of family ties.—Linda Ludke, London Public Library, Ontario, Canada
“Sunny illustrations. . . . [Edmund’s] trailing tail, goofy smile, twirly ‘bangs,’ baseball cap and jaunty backpack will allow young readers to identify with him. . . . They will smile with recognition when he meets ‘interesting people’ in the shapes of bottles, toilet paper rolls, buttons and even a friendly pincushion. They will undoubtedly cheer when Edmund exhausts the possibilities of travel and rolls himself home to family and friends. . . . This long extended metaphor filled with laugh-worthy wordplay will comfort children and parents alike.”
— Kirkus Reviews
“Animated with bright colors and lots of action. . . . Tightly woven with wordplay, this is a whimsical story of family ties.”—School Library Journal
“Kolb has a bright, clean drawing style that will remind readers of their favorite contemporary animation, and his panoramas make it fun to follow Edmund’s travels and the trail of yarn he leaves in his wake. . . . Impressive for its visual playfulness and its astute take on child development.”—Publishers Weekly

As a father, I personally love reading Edmund Unravels to my little boy who yells "Edmund" when the book comes out. It's a story that can be read over and over and visually never gets tiring.
The name, "Edmund" is a household name for us!
The illustrations are fantastic and the story is short, but to the point. If you have someone that loves adventures as much as Edmund, this is a cute, fun way to tell them you'll always be there when they decide to come home.

This book is absolutely brilliant on 2 levels. First off it's a cute story about a ball of string that unravels as it goes further from home.Read more
