El mitón



Cuanda a Nicki se le cae uno de sus guantes blancos en la nieve, sigue caminando sin darse cuenta de que lo ha perdido

Uno a uno, los animales del bosque lo encuentran y se resguardan dentro. Primero, un curioso topo, después, una liebre, un tejón, y le siguen otros animales, cada uno más grande que el anterior. Finalmente, a un gran oso pardo lo sigue un pequeño ratón de la pradera, y lo que ocurre a continuación culmina en un maravilloso y divertido final.                Mientras la historia de los animales y el mitón se desarrolla, los lectores pueden seguir a Nicki, en los bordes de cada página, completamente al margen de lo que sucede a su alrededor.

About the author

Jan Brett

With over thirty seven million books in print, Jan Brett is one of the USA'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.'
