Scholastic Press, 2009 - Juvenile Fiction - 32 pages
When a little boy loses a mitten in the snow, a passing squirrel finds it's the perfect place to warm his icy toes. So he sqe-e-e-e-zes inside. But he's not the only animal with that idea. How many animals can fit inside a little boy's mitten?
Aylesworth's rollicking rhyming refrains and McClintock's delightfully expressive characters are sure to make this book everychild's storytime favorite.

"'Br-r-r-r-r-rrrr!' said the squirrel.
'My toes are cold as ice!
This mitten looks so cozy,
and warm toes would feel so nice!'"
