Editorial Reviews

Review

"The illustrations are exquisite . . . a charming lap book to be pored over again and again." —School Library Journal

"Readers will sit back and suspend belief and welcome this tall tale from the Ukrainian tradition." —
Publishers Weekly

"Grandmother knits snow-white mittens that Nikki takes on an adventure. Readers will enjoy the charm and humor in the portrayal of the animals as they make room for each newcomer in the mitten and sprawl in the snow after the big sneeze."  -The Horn Book

About the Author

With over thirty four million books in print, Jan Brett is one of the nation's foremost author illustrators of children's books. Jan lives in a seacoast town in Massachusetts, close to where she grew up. During the summer her family moves to a home in the Berkshire Hills of Massachusetts.

As a child, Jan Brett decided to be an illustrator and spent many hours reading and drawing. She says, "I remember the special quiet of rainy days when I felt that I could enter the pages of my beautiful picture books. Now I try to recreate that feeling of believing that the imaginary place I'm drawing really exists. The detail in my work helps to convince me, and I hope others as well, that such places might be real."

As a student at the Boston Museum School, she spent hours in the Museum of Fine Arts. "It was overwhelming to see the room-size landscapes and towering stone sculptures, and then moments later to refocus on delicately embroidered kimonos and ancient porcelain," she says. "I'm delighted and surprised when fragments of these beautiful images come back to me in my painting."

Travel is also a constant inspiration. Together with her husband, Joe Hearne, who is a member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Jan visits many different countries where she researches the architecture and costumes that appear in her work. "From cave paintings to Norwegian sleighs, to Japanese gardens, I study the traditions of the many countries I visit and use them as a starting point for my children's books."

3.0 out of 5 stars Quality Control - Board Book Cut Improperly
Reviewed in the United States on January 30, 2019
5 star for the book, 3 stars for quality control. I love this story. I read it as a child and bought the board book to read to my daughter. I was disappointed to see upon arrival the book appeared to be cut improperly at the bottom. The top has rounded edges and the bottom is slanted and sliced off. The author's name isn't fully visible and the illustrations are also chopped off as you go through the book. Amazon is replacing the item for me with little effort on my part - so I'm a happy customer. Should the replacement item have the same problem they will pull the inventory from the shelf for review. They will make good on the purchase but beware and inspect it upon arrival for the board book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Book....Arrived damaged
Reviewed in the United States on May 21, 2020
I LOVE this story, the author and the pictures. However, it arrived bent, and the top right corner of front cover had been bent. If I had purchased it used I wouldn’t have been surprised by the quality of the book. Poor quality for a new book. It should have been delivered in a box but it was delivered in a bubble wrap envelope with another item.
