Because boys can be textile artists too (two)

(Shortlisted for Picture Book of the Year 1989) "Mr Nick and Mrs Jolley are friends. They meet every morning on the seven o'clock train to the city. Mr Nick knits jumpers for his twenty two nieces and nephews and Mrs Jolley knits toys. They both love knitting and they love each other's company.
One morning Mrs Jolley isn't on the train, she is ill in hospital. Mr Nick misses his friend and works very hard to make something very special to cheer her up..."
