Edmund is a young ball of yarn with a thirst for discovery. He unwinds himself bit by bit throughout his hometown, venturing as far as he can before his parents pull him back home, until the day finally arrives when he is old enough to leave for good. On his own, Edmund discovers new places and new adventures. But when being alone loses its appeal, Edmundís family and friends are there to once more pull him home, no matter how far away heís roamed.
Written and illustrated by Andrew Kolb, Edmund Unravels is a clever story about growing up and figuring out the balance between living on oneís own and keeping close to family and friends. Edmund feels too wound up at home. He needs to see the world, but his parents hold him back, repeatedly winding up his loose thread and tugging him home with it. When heís old enough, Edmund is at last able to travel as far as he wants, and he has a wonderful time exercising his newfound freedom. After seeing many great sights, however, Edmund begins to grow weary of being alone. In his eagerness to see the world, he failed to realize the importance of having a home to return to, and he soon comes to understand that itís good to wind himself up and visit home every once in a while so he doesnít come completely unravelled.
