What's The Mitten About

Publisher Summary

The bestselling modern classic, in an oversized board book edition perfect for sharing.

When Nicki drops his white mitten in the snow, he goes on without realizing that it is missing.

One by one, woodland animals find it and crawl in; first, a curious mole, then a rabbit, a badger and others, each one larger than the last. Finally, a big brown bear is followed in by a tiny brown mouse and what happens next makes for a wonderfully funny climax.

As the story of the animals in the mitten unfolds, the reader can see Nicki in the borders of each page, walking through the woods unaware of what is going on.

In her distinctive style, Jan Brett brings the animals to life with warmth and humor, and her illustrations are full of visual delights and details faithful to the Ukrainian tradition from which the story comes.

4.5

This is a shortened version of the classic for board book form, so it’s important to know that going in. The illustrations are the same, but the text has been chopped quite a bit, and in my personal opinion, lost some of its charm.
