“Oscar!
You found it!

Wow! A flying mitten!

Oh, it’s only a little bird.
I wonder if he stole my mitten to make a snuggly nest.

No, he’s too small to carry off a mitten.

But an eagle could do it!

Maybe an eagle took my mitten to keep his baby’s head warm.”
Steven Kellogg, The Missing Mitten Mystery

“Do you think my mitten got tired of being a mitten?
Maybe it just slipped off my hand and hopped away.

There are no mitten tracks, but here are some mouse tracks heading toward the woodpile!

Could that mouse be using my mitten for a sleeping bag?

Or maybe he’ll wear it next Halloween and be a mitten mummy!”
Steven Kellogg, The Missing Mitten Mystery

“Finding missing mittens is hard work.
It would be easier to grow new ones!
Let’s try planting the other mitten right here in the garden. Next spring when the snow melts, a little mitten tree might sprout.

Miss Seltzer and I would take good care of it all summer long.

In the fall we’d pick the ripe mittens.

Then I’d give mittens on Christmas.

And mittens on birthdays.

And mittens on Valentine’s Day!”
Steven Kellogg, The Missing Mitten Mystery
