It was fun catching up with Lydia and meeting her new friends. But, having read The Shop on Blossom St only a couple weeks ago I found A Good Yarn too repetative i.e. recapping what happened in the first book and not enough new stuff in the second. I suppose if I'd read them when they first came out, having to wait a whole year between reads, that might be different.
