* An ALA Notable Book * Horn Book Fanfare *

Award-winning author Alvin Tresselt retells the traditional Ukrainian folktale in his most popular children's book, The Mitten.

Deep in the woods on the coldest day of winter a little boy drops his mitten. And that lost mitten stretches and stretches--and stretches--to provide shelter for many woodland creatures.

Originally published in 1964 and adapted from E. Rachev's version of the Ukrainian folktale, Yaroslava's distinctly charming illustrations and Alvin Tresselt's detailed text are as timeless and universal as the story itself.
