Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Ice Harbor Mittens .This is truly a magical book with text that would challenge a third grader but should be comfortable for the fifth grade child. The story would be lovely for a knitter to read to their child or grandchild. The illustrations are a wonderful wash of color as the characters play across the pages with whimsical reality. Another wonderful offering that gives folks a little glimpse of the working families that populate the coast of Maine. -Kate Quinn, The Working Waterfront, 12/14/2010
