Item Description...
When Nicki loses the mitten that his grandmother had knitted for him, the woodland animals find it and crawl inside, each one larger than the last, but as the mitten stretches and grows, grandmother's knitting holds fast, until a tiny mouse proves to be too much.

Publishers Description
"Grandmother knits snow-white mittens that Nikki takes on an adventure. Readers will enjoy the charm and humor in the portrayal of the animals as they make room for each newcomer in the mitten and sprawl in the snow after the big sneeze."
" -The Horn Book"

More About Jan Brett

Jan Brett With over thirty seven million books in print, Jan Brett is one of the nation's foremost author illustrators of children's books. Jan lives in a seacoast town in Massachusetts, close to where she grew up. During the summer her family moves to a home in the Berkshire Hills of Massachusetts.

As a child, Jan Brett decided to be an illustrator and spent many hours reading and drawing. She says, "I remember the special quiet of rainy days when I felt that I could enter the pages of my beautiful picture books. Now I try to recreate that feeling of believing that the imaginary place I'm drawing really exists. The detail in my work helps to convince me, and I hope others as well, that such places might be real."

As a student at the Boston Museum School, she spent hours in the Museum of Fine Arts. "It was overwhelming to see the room-size landscapes and towering stone sculptures, and then moments later to refocus on delicately embroidered kimonos and ancient porcelain," she says. "I'm delighted and surprised when fragments of these beautiful images come back to me in my painting."

Travel is also a constant inspiration. Together with her husband, Joe Hearne, who is a member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Jan visits many different countries where she researches the architecture and costumes that appear in her work. "From cave paintings to Norwegian sleighs, to Japanese gardens, I study the traditions of the many countries I visit and use them as a starting point for my children's books."

Jan Brett currently resides in the state of Massachusetts. Jan Brett was born in 1949.

The Mitten  Jun 15, 2008
This is a wonderful book, the story will delight all ages.
It's a story of a grandmother knitting a pair of white mittens. One is lost and then the fun begins and so does the story.
A very good read..
The Mitten  May 2, 2008
The Mitten has always been a favorite of mine. Beautifully illustrated. Wonderful story. Jan Brett is top-notch. Highly recommended.
Beautiful illustrations, but this re-telling kills the beauty in the story  Apr 17, 2008
I ordered this because I was having difficulty finding the original THE MITTEN from my childhood. This re-telling kills the beautiful original message of giving and sharing. In the original, the cricket invites all of the animals into the mitten out of kindness--it's the coldest day of the winter and she feels sorry for them. In this version, each of the animals feels "bullied" into letting the next animal in out of fear. Ugly! And what a terrible message in this day and age, when bullying is such an issue. I would never recommend this book when the original is still available. And something about the simpler drawings in the original allows the story to truly shine, as it should. This version is pretty, but hollow.
Beautiful book!  Apr 11, 2008
My daughter loves to look at the pictures in this book. She is too young to understand the story, but there's so much to see! This is a great story that I remember from my own childhood. I am sure she willl enjoy it for years to come!
The Mitten  Feb 10, 2008
The Mitten: A Ukrainian Folktale This delightful story is illustrated in amazing detail, encouraging the child to anticipate the next part of the story, and to search for clues in the drawings. A wealth of learning encapsulated in a beautiful story.
