The Quilt Story


The Quilt Story by Tony Johnston and Tomie dePaola tells the story of a beautiful quilt made for a little girl named Abigail. Abigail loves the quilt, and when she and her family move to a new home, the quilt gives her comfort and warmth. After many years, Abigail put her well-loved quilt in the attic where it is loved by mice and raccoons and cats. After many years, another little girl finds the quilt and her mother patches it up. When her family moves, the quilt again becomes a warm, safe place for a young girl. The unique and colorful illustrations bring to life the story of the quilt and the girls who love it.
