The Mitten by Jan Brett - 20th Anniversary Edition (2009 Hardcover with Dust Jacket)
A bestselling modern classic that has been a family favorite for over 25 years. 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.
This striking oversized anniversary edition with a silver foil dust jacket and a fresh image of the woodland animals is sure to attract fans old and new as well as adult collectors of Brett's books. Millions of readers have fallen in love with Jan Brett's "The Mitten," and over 2.5 million copies have been sold since publication in 1989.
