by Jan Brett
A lovely twentieth anniversary edition has arrived just in time for a second generation to join the millions who already love this book.
Brett, one of the most popular illustrators of children’s books, retells and illustrates a Ukrainian folktale that brings the woods animals to life as they find Nicki’s white mitten in the snow. What happens when a big bear tries to crawl in the mitten? What happens to the other animals? Does Nicki get the mitten back? As the School Library Journal has stated, “Brett’s animals steal the show”!
