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 a wonderfully funny climax. Jan Brett brings this Ukrainian folk tale to life with warmth and humor, in her distinctive style. Beautifully illustrated. Ages 3 - 8. Board Book.
