Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Snuggle up with a cup of hot cocoa and enjoy Brett's treasury of four, delightful tales that are together one collection. Join in the merry chase as the mischievous Gingerbread Baby runs through the Swiss village and into the woods for a surprise. Next, find out what happens to Nicki's lost, white mitten while he plays in the snow all day. Then, see how Hedgie the hedgehog accidently begins a new fashion trend for the animals on the farm. Lastly, discover who visits the igloo of the snow bears as they are out for a walk. Each of these wintery stories has its unique twist on a familiar folktale. The beautiful, detailed illustrations are attractive, colorful, and bright. The borders around the illustrations are intricate and also hold a subplot that adds information to the main story. The author's note at the front of the collection reveals her inspiration for the stories. Enter the snowy settings of this treasury again and again. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung

    A true treasure

    We love Jan Brett and had the opportunity to meet her several years ago. Her books are always a fun read with a touch of drama. The illustrations are just wonderful. Her style of writing is very inviting to all ages.
