really liked it

Read in October, 2009

This is another version of the classic Ukrainian folktale about one animal after another fitting into a boy's lost mitten, and draws its inspiration from other picture books -- versions by Jan Brett and Alvin Tresselt come to mind. But this one has plenty of its own charm -- nice illustrations, and repetition make this a great story for young kids -- they'll definitely laugh at the yarn explosion!
