Their misadventures brought them into contact with such unlikely creatures as the Soup Dragon, the Froglets, the Iron Chicken and the Glow Buzzers. This fantastic new book explains how to knit your own Clanger, as well as such friendly characters as the Soup Dragon, Iron Chicken, and the Froglets--even your own Clanger planet!
