What weabout it
Its gorgeous illustrations made this book a modern classic, steeped in Ukrainian tradition with a dash of forest animal hijinx.


The warm color palette and lovingly rendered detail create an atmosphere that invites readers into this cozy Ukrainian cottage, before leading them on an adventure through the woods. It’s the story of a little boy who wanted white mittens, the doting grandmother who knit them for him and the adventures that ensued when he (of course) loses the white mitten in the white snow.
