Jan Brett is the illustrator of many well-known folktales, fairy tales, and poems, such as Goldilocks and the Three Bears and The Owl and the Pussycat, by Edward Lear. Her special signature in her detailed artwork is the intricate borders, seen in this book as birch-bark panels with embroidered details and mitten-shaped vignettes offering additional insights into the story line. Brett is at her best when she illustrates animals, and the expressions on the faces of her creatures are a delight. She carefully researched the costumes, furniture, and house in this traditional Ukrainian tale--all are authentic. A fine story to read on a frosty night with a cup of hot chocolate, and if you ever get your fill of The Mitten, you can always try its delightfully original companion book, The Hat, winner of the 1998 Boston Globe-Horn Book Award. (Ages 4 to 8) --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.
Very cute book. I knitted a mitten and collected animals so my granddaughter could play along while I read the story. Lots of fun! She loves it!Published 5 days ago by Cameron
The Story is lovely, but the Kindle edition was a disappointment. The illustrations, at least when seen on the kindle Ipad app, are too small. Read morePublished 11 days ago by Sylvia Hammond
