Editorial Reviews

Review

"The illustrations are exquisite . . . a charming lap book to be pored over again and again." —School Library Journal

"Readers will sit back and suspend belief and welcome this tall tale from the Ukrainian tradition." —Publishers Weekly

Amazon.com Review

In Jan Brett's wintertime favorite The Mitten, a Ukrainian boy named Nicki wants his grandmother Baba to knit snow-white mittens for him. She warns her grandson that a white mitten will be hard to find if he loses it in the snow, but of course he promptly does just that! What happens next is the surprising part, as a mole takes refuge in the lost mitten, then a rabbit, then a hedgehog, an owl, a badger, and a fox. If you think the mitten might be a wee bit stretched out at this point, just wait: "Then a big bear sniffed at the mitten. The animals were packed in tight, but the bear didn't care. He crawled in anyway." The Mitten, a runaway holiday hit, is now packaged in a lovely gift box with a set of pale gray, stretchy acrylic, machine-washable, one-size-fits-most-kids-under-five mittens, complete with hedgehog decal. This is a fine story to read on a frosty night with a cup of hot chocolate (wearing hedgehog mittens of course), 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. (Preschool to age 5) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quality Control - Board Book Cut Improperly
By Max on January 30, 2019
5 star for the book, 3 stars for quality control. I love this story. I read it as a child and bought the board book to read to my daughter. I was disappointed to see upon arrival the book appeared to be cut improperly at the bottom. The top has rounded edges and the bottom is slanted and sliced off. The author's name isn't fully visible and the illustrations are also chopped off as you go through the book. Amazon is replacing the item for me with little effort on my part - so I'm a happy customer. Should the replacement item have the same problem they will pull the inventory from the shelf for review. They will make good on the purchase but beware and inspect it upon arrival for the board book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Book....Arrived damaged
By Karen P on May 21, 2020
I LOVE this story, the author and the pictures. However, it arrived bent, and the top right corner of front cover had been bent. If I had purchased it used I wouldn’t have been surprised by the quality of the book. Poor quality for a new book. It should have been delivered in a box but it was delivered in a bubble wrap envelope with another item.
