By Pat Kittelson
Pat has created a series of children's books featuring Bixley Baines - a solitary knitter, who cares deeply for protecting earth's beautiful creatures. The purpose of the books is to use a whimsical story to highlight small environment issues based on true events and real science.
Bixley Baines and the Little Sweaters is a story based on a true event that occured in 2000 off the shore of Tasmania, Australia. An oil tanker leaker and covered little blue penguins residing there. Little sweaters were knit and used to keep the little penguins warm during their cleaning and recovery. With a fun story and the true science plus a knitting pattern, this is a book to inspire simple solutions to caring for the environment.
